I got 6 (the minimum buy) of “fancy crested assorted.” Any guess what these little guys are? None of them has feathered feet. I’m sure that the white crested black one is a Polish but I just don’t know about the rest.

    I definitely see a white crested black polish in there, and the solid brown chick reminds me of an Easter Egger I used to have. Not sure if EE’s are considered fancy crested lol, but here’s some pics for comparison...

    The black and white one I believe is a white crested black polish. The rest look like Easter Eggers or what hatcheries like to mislabel as Ameraucanas. I don't think EEs are supposed to crested and they don't really look like they will be.

    Most feed stores have no clue what they are selling. The employees just feed, water, change the bedding and put more chicks in the bins.(sometimes in the wrong bins)

    Most won't be crested, but beards are cute too!

    Evidence on beards being cute.

    I believe this girl is part salmon Faverolles.

    Is it true that Polish with a very distinct head crest at hatch are cockerels?

    No, both sexes have crests. Later on the males have long, spiky feathers at the crest, so then they look different than the females in that regard.

    I, too, replied to your other thread. :) With the exception of a White Crested Black Polish, there aren't any crested birds in the bunch. Almost exclusively Easter Eggers. Just wanting to confirm leg color and comb type on the yellow chick, first. :)

    Maybe olive eggers since they were allegedly a fancy assortment.

    I agree with all the other posters.

    Cute chicks! :love

    They are Easter Eggers except for the black one with the white crest. That's a White Crested Black Polish.
