    I have several LF white crested black Polish cockerals that need to find homes. I'm a bit further than 2 hours from Port Deposit...I think it takes me about 2 1/2 hours. I am waaaayyy down in southern MD. But we travel north all the time (Annapolis, etc.) & if I'm heading that way anyway, I don't mind bringing chickens along & meeting folks.

    I also have a group of 5 LF Polish (white crested blacks, same parents as the above-mentioned cockerals) chicks that I'd like to sell as a group, if you're interested. I *think* they are just about old enough for me to tell sex. I think it's 2 cockerals/3 pullets, tho I'd have to look again. Some of them look like they might turn out to be very nice birds. I've hatched some real pretty pullets this year.

    ETA: Anne, I think you got some Polish chicks from me from the PA chickenstock. Did you ever officially determine if they were LF or bantam? I remember you weren't sure. Just to let you know, there is no doubt that the birds I'm talking about above are LF! [​IMG]

    Hi Crunchie,
    I'm pretty sure that they are large fowl and female. I'm going to try and upload new pics just to be sure before I get anymore. The coop that I plan on them going into is a good size for 4 max. so maybe I'll get 2. What is your zip code so I can mapquest it and make sure hubby is okay with the drive. Also, after I put the pics on tonight, I'll send you a PM with the link since you are the Polish "expert" [​IMG]

    Oh good, I'm glad that they seem to be LF, as they should have been! I would have hated to have mixed up birds & given you the wrong thing. My zip is 20659. It's a hike, but it's a pretty drive. [​IMG] The only time I've ever driven to Port Deposit was for...poultry. [​IMG] Turkey eggs, to be exact. Anyway, if the drive isn't too much, I have plenty of cockerals & some pullets to pick from, they range in age from the chicks I was talking about to several months old. I'm keeping a few for show/breeding & everyone else has to go to a new home--we are officially beyond our maximum capacity around here. And I'd be glad to see your pics & try to help you confirm gender & such (though I don't know if you can really call me an "expert." [​IMG])

    2 hours, 18 mins!!! Whoo Hoo!!! That's not too far. Especially for your polish. I'll uplaod the pics tonight and then we can figure out what I have and need.
    I'm supposed to be cutting back too, but since I sold 20 chickens this weekend, I'm entitled to get 2 new ones now. Can't count the eggs in the bator since I'm not supposed to count my chickens before they hatch. I love chicken math. [​IMG]
