    Ok so I purchased some eggs from someone on line with stating "Tolbunt Polish Chickens". I hatched them and this is what I got.
    2 - are all black ( 1 looks to be a hen and the other a rooster)
    2 - are a cream. orange color. Almost buff (both are rooster, I'm pretty sure)
    2 - are half black/half brown (once again, I think I have one of each)
    1 - looks to be a blue with black penciling ( I'm thinking a hen)

    My first question is this.....Do I have polish Tobunt?
    What rooster should I keep with the hens to get the most desirable chicks?
    Or should I just let them be and keep them for the fresh eggs?

    Here are a couple of pictures. Not very good ones with it being winter and all, but I wanted you all to see the colors

    You will notice that they are with some Ameracaunas, and a few silver penciled which are being seperated out this weekend.

    I don't see any Tolbunts. Top picture looks like a gold laced cockerel, and a silver laced blue? pullet. Bottom picture looks like 2 buff laced cockerels.

    This is what I thought. So I am thinking of keeping the Gold laced rooster since I have a hen that is gold laced as well.
    That will give me
    a Gold Laced Rooster
    Gold Laced Hen
    Silver laced Hen
    All black hen. Which by the way in the sun light is beautiful.

    What do you think?
