    Okay I am still deciding to either get Rcrp (Red crested red polish) or Btrp (Blacktailed red polish) so can you guys post any pictures you might have or could find of one of these red polish colors

    This is Buddy, my husbands favorite roo... He is supposed to be a Red crested red I believe. I put his pic on here and their was some debate, but I think consenses was that he is. HaHa. I have a hen like him too. He is a very friendly, follow you everywhere , always under your feet, type chicken. We love him. [​IMG] ( he is prettier now, he was a little raggy in this pic, and those are 5 month old JG in backround)

    a friend of mine who raised the bantam black tailed reds bought the red crested reds and said that they are essentially the same bird. Reason being that the red crested reds are far from perfect, so they most all still have a black tail, or are marked like the one in the pictures. black tail reds need a lot of work too, but are a little closer to what their name is.

    Quote:I thought they were a lot alike but I just wanted to say both colors because people think they might be different

    I would be interested in seeing pics as well. Been thinking about getting a few Black tailed Red Polish at some point.
