    Well, my question to you is, where on earth did you find yours? Are they hatchery or non? I can't find any std. polish, besides hatchery stock, to save my life! [​IMG] I would love to see pics of your birds!! Just make me [​IMG] a little [​IMG]

    Quote:These reds i got from Ideal, but i have so many other colors out in the polish pen, not from hatcherys. They are all standard, well except my little frizzle white crested black cockerel he is a bantam, so adoribal.

    Are we talking white crested red, or true reds? Because I know a couple hatcheries like Ideal are now getting white crested reds, but. . . true reds? I'm very curious to see what they look like from a hatchery stock.

    Yeesh, I just read up and found out that they are actually a hatchery project of red leghorns with white crested polish. I was beginning to wonder. . . There honestly is no such thing as a red crested red - There are black tailed reds, but those are very rare.

    Well anyway, curious to see how they grow to look. Kinda doubt they will look true polish, but still curious.
