    Hello I got some WCB's at my local feed store but now that they are feathered their crest all look different ,ps I know which ones are hens but the crest are different ,one has a Large black band ,one has a Thin black band and the last 2 have like a real sparse black band, is this normal or just bad breeding? thank for the info, any pics of head shots would be great!

    Quote:Im a little lost too, I'm kinda assuming the OP means WCB as in White Crested Black Polish since they are talking about a crested breed.

    I'm new to the chicken world and I'm seeing a lot of acronyms that I'm clueless about. Is there a "Master List of Chicken Acronyms" that I could get a copy of so I can interpret a lot of the posts on BYC?

    it might be easier if you to post pictures of yours so the" experts" can see what you are talking about.
    here is a picture of 1 of mine from a private breeder on here.she is 5 weeks
