#3 in our spring flock will be . . .

Polish Crested are ornamental chickens that have been known as a pure breed since the 16th Century. They are prized for their "hairdos"- they have mops of feathers on top their heads. They have a small v- comb and large nostrils typical of crested breeds. Polish commonly lay 2 small cream coloured eggs a week and are non-sitters. They are known to be docile and may be bullied by the other hens.

The family was pretty vocal on getting another "chicken with an afro" (as our old neighbors in Minneapolis called her) We chose the "Buff" colouring this time.

44 days and counting. . .
