The Polish chickens origins are somewhat of a mystery. The Dutch are given credit for standardizing the breed.
Polish are known for the huge crest that adorns their heads. While their temperament is tame, due to their crests obscuring their vision, they can be frightened and startled easily which has given them the reputation of being a bit flighty.
They lay a decent sized white egg and are good layers. They rarely go broody and so if you are thinking of hatching chicks, you will most likely need to consider an alternate means of incubating the eggs.
Polish have a "V" shaped comb, can be bearded or non bearded, have white earlobes, slate gray legs and can be frizzled. They come in many color varieties in both solids and laced.
Chicks, when available, are 8.00 each for local pickup/delivery only.
