    I just love these birds, but have to downsize considerably before winter. They would stay if I had a place to keep them and I had more than 1 hen, but it seems that I'm mostly good at hatching roosters from this breed. I've already found homes for 2 other roosters. [​IMG]

    The 2 males are not officially roosters yet, just cockerals (hatched 12/4/12) - they are brothers and get along well.

    The female is a pullet (hatched 1/3/13) - unrelated to the males. She was laying for a couple of months, but has stopped laying for over a month now. They've been moved to a different pen and then it started to get colder here and less daylight.

    Hatched from eggs from two different BYCers. $45 for the group - Reduced to $25 for the group - they really do need to find a home. [​IMG]

    They are local pickup only. They go as a group. [​IMG]

    Many look like him and many others are more beautiful with coloring.

    You could ask on this thread if anyone has any near you. I only have a few and the hens are not laying right now. Not all I have hatched have come out the tolbunt coloring. Hope you are able to find one. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/395888/tolbunt-polish/1010
