Now Accepting 2024 Pre-Orders for day old chicks
Oh, the fun we've had this past summer hatching and raising our first Polish poultry! What a unique and beautiful chicken. The Polish breed is currently on the watch list of the Livestock Conservancy. I've found them to be a hardy bird, tolerant of heat and cold. They do require extra attention paid to the crest as it does block their view. If you move them to a new pen or introduce them to new poultry, it is suggested to keep the crest trimmed so that they can see. Predators can easily sneak up on the Polish due to the large crest and they're also easily surprised when you walk into the coop.
Did you know that the Polish chicken has nothing to do with Poland. The name "Polled" is refiring to the crest on the head. The Polish are very docile, friendly birds. Even the roosters are well tempered and easy to work with. The hens lay a medium sized white egg. The Polish are a petite bird with hens weighing around 3 pounds.
If you're looking for that perfect companion chicken or pet, this is it! We're raising these birds simply for the joy of having the Polish. We're not claiming we have show quality birds however they're quite captivating. We're keeping 2 separate pens; one pen has White Crested Chocolate Cuckoo and Khaki Cuckoo together. The other Pen has White Crested Cuckoo and White Crested Black Polish. When you place a chick order you will get a mix of colors that come from these 2 pens of breeders. We will not fill orders at this time on particular colors of chicks. When placing a pullet order we will be choosing the color of the pullet for you so that we can concentrate on the sex of the bird and not the color of the bird. All of the colors are absolutely beautiful. At this time, we aren't exactly sure of the colors that we will be hatching do to how the pens are set up color wise and the fact that this is a new endeavor.
ATTENTION: Polish chicks are sold straight run! We require orders of a minimum of 10 day old chicks. These 10 can be a mix of any of our breeds This keeps the babies warm and healthy in the box. We guarantee live delivery of 10 or more chicks.
If you wish to order fewer you can contact us. This would be for an order for farm pickup of less than 10, or an order of less than 10 that has no live delivery guarantee.
