    I am not sure where to put this thread, hope I have the right place..

    Could you all take a look at my 1 day old polish chicks, and give me ideas on their colours, I am not great at all with naming the colour of chicks so all your help is appreciated, I have put above each picture what I think they may be, but like I said I am not great [​IMG]

    1# (maybe a white)
    [​IMG]

    2# (maybe just black)

    3# (Chamois maybe?)
    [​IMG]

    4# (some sort of blue??)

    . . . . Chamois? Polish come in Chamois in England? What do you call Chamois?


    I think you're right though, but the whites look Buff Laced. Whites are whiter, Buff Laced have a more yellow tinge.

    Since you are on the other side of the pond....
    I am not sure how common whites are there. The light colored ones look to be Buff Laced or White. The darker ones look like maybe Silver Laced? Although the last one IS more blue, but there again, not sure if you have solid blues over there? That is the tough thing about trying to figure out varieties between here and over there in Europe, you guys have quite a few more options that we do in some breeds.
    Good luck.

    Quote:Hiya, Chamois is just another name for buff laced, you call them buff laced, we call them chamois.

    The only reason I thought #1 was white was due to its very pink legs, and beak..... #3 chamois (buff laced) was the tanned tinge to its legs and beak.
    But no matter they are still so darn cute...... watching some silver laced eggs on ebay at the minute [​IMG]
