Pre-paid Ordering Only!
It’s hard to mistake a Polish chicken – the hen will have a ‘pom-pom’ hairdo which is fairly neat and tidy. The roosters on the other hand look like ‘wild thing’ with the feathers giving a ‘bad hair’ day impression! The head feathers of both sexes grow up and then cascade over her head and face, sometimes causing visual problems. The head crest is supported by a bony prominence which arises from the skull. Polish chickens can also be bearded (depending on the variety), which sees a profusion of feathers around the head and face. The rooster has the unusual V-shapped comb which often gets lost in his head feathers. Earlobes are white and wattles are red. The coloring of the legs is gray and they have four toes to each foot. The feet and legs should not have any feathering. The male bird can attain a weight of around six pounds, while the hen is usually around four and a half pounds. They are a white skinned bird. The egg production of polish chickens can be widely variable depending on the line of breeding. In general, they lay a fair amount of white, medium/large eggs. The average is around 150 eggs per year. As we have already noted, they will rarely brood although it is not unknown.
