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.
