    Hi all, I would like everyone that has W/C Blue Polish to please post photos and where you got them. I am looking to get some and I would like to see what my options are. If you are a breeder great as I have no problem hatching eggs.

    Thanks so much. [​IMG]

    I just snapped a few of my chicks from Ideal; I will post them in a bit. They are only two weeks old.

    I have two, they came from Ideal but I purchased them at Atwoods (farm & ranch store). When I get some pics, I'll post them here.

    I lost one within the first few days, it looked just like the first one posted, if not the yellow head being more prominent. I will have one replacement coming in May with my other order.

    I ordered about five of those and all of them had white creasted and blue bodies. They were cute!

    Quote:You got yours from Ideal? I was thinking of getting them from Meyer because they sex them (and I have hatched out a million roos). Anyone know of Meyers Blue Polish.

    Parent stock was from MM about 4 years ago. Theses are from that stock that included blues and blacks.

    I have found the blues have a lower hatch rate and can be prone to some crooked toes. Not toes that are curled at hatch, but they are not as straight as the WC Blacks.

    Baby Boogie and clutch mates. His father is my avatar. Boogie is in the back, he is the only one that looks like he doesn't have a hang over.

    Boogie around 9 weeks.

    Boogie's mother on the right. Gabby...she never stops talking. The sun was bright that day, she is medium blue.
