    I purchased these from Ideal Hatchery in an assortment. I think they are polish chickens. They are 14 weeks old. Does anyone know what variety they are? Thank you.

    I think they are supposed to be red crested polish, it is a new color Ideal has been developing.

    Thanks! I see that 2 and 4 are that but what about the others? They look like different polish breeds.

    #1 looks like they crossed a Golden Polish with something else to try and create a Red Crested Red Polish, the other are all Red Crested Red Polish hatchery chicks aren't the best quality so some breeds will look different even if they are the same kind.
