    Hope someone can answer this question...
    I have a black polish hen that is 18 months old. She was all black with a white splash in her top knot. Now all of the white is gone and she is completely black. Is this normal? will she ever get the white splash back?

    I don't know about polish specifically. Some color changes can happen with a molt. I do know on australorpes, for example,will have a white feather or two, and lose them with molting.
