    I picked up 5 chicks at the feed store. I wanted crested polish bantams so I took all the Pom headed chicks. Problem is they were mixed in with all of the other normal sized chicks. 3 of them are definitely polish crested. 1 might be but is bigger with less black and then there is this one. Mostly cream with a grayish back. I noticed the second day that she has furry feet and I can't find any pics of polish with feathered feet. Any ideas?

    Not a Silkie since it's not feathering out Silkie feathered, looks like a Sultan.

    someone else had a sultan chick that was colored this way and had asked if they had gotten a blue sultan .. turns out its just an odd colored chick that will turn white as it feathers out kinda like the white cochins aint a white or yellow chick.

    chicago chick, yours wont have as nice of a crest since it does not have the vaulted skull and them toes are to long for showing, but a very cute chick none the less and hope she turns out to be a she for you
