White Crested Blue Polish

$5.00

White Crested Blue Polish chickens (non bearded) are one of the best ornamental chicken breeds that are primarily used for exhibition.  The Polish chicken is actually thought to have originally come from the Netherlands rather than Poland, but the name was given when the birds were first transported from Poland and initially introduced in England.  This old breed is thought to have been domesticated in Eastern Europe since the early 16th century.  Like all other blue varieties of poultry, the White Crested Blue Polish do not breed true to color.  Two blues mated together will produce a variety of splash, black-blue and blue chicks.

The primary purpose of the Polish Chicken today is for show and backyard oddity.  Some refer to them as top hats or top knobs.  Polish chickens are not known for going broody but will lay a good amount of white small to medium sized eggs throughout the year.  This chicken is notable for the crest of feathers around its head, as well as its large nostrils.  The crest of the male is a bit more erratic and umbrella shaped, while the hens’ crests are fluffy and full feathered.  They make excellent pets but sometimes can have issues with drinking water in the winter time.  Their top knob feathers get water logged as they drink and my need trimmed back.  Order yours online today!
