Welcome to fun and funky! These are our polish we have that are not the silver laced pattern or tolbunt pattern – they can be buff laced, white, black, black and white and possibly a funky combo of both. We have both frizzle feathered and smooth! Still Polish but with unpredictable feather colors or types, and that sounds fun to us!

Polish are a calm docile bird ideal for confinement or urban situations. The hens can be quite chatty and the roosters  friendly. They can make great companions. Polish chickens have huge amounts of character, they’re great for pets, smaller gardens and they are very child friendly. Since they tend to be more docile they can be bullied by more aggressive and larger breeds. Polish chickens are happier with other gentle breeds and with other crested friends in the flock. They are also slower developing chicks as many heritage breeds are. We treat them as we would bantams and provide a heat source and higher protein feed for a longer period of time.

They make a lovely pet and will often run to their owner for food. Hens will lay around 120 white medium sized eggs a year, not bad for a small bird.  There are more than ten plumage colors to choose from for general Polish chickens.  Our breeding flock can tolerate the harsh Vermont winters and hot summers. We are pleasantly surprised on their hardiness. We find Polish are more fragile as chicks and growing. Once reaching adulthood they are much hardier.

Extra care and maintenance must be given to their crests as it can restrict their vision sometimes causing startled behavior. We like to put the crest sometimes in a ponytail or do a small trim.

Polish chickens in general can tend to get Marek’s Disease – a very deadly uncurbable chicken disease. We vaccinate all our birds for this disease as chicks, and offer that safety to our customers. It is the right thing to do, you can however opt-out. They are raised non-GMO.

 

Feed Recommendations: we recommend starting baby chicks out with Sugar Feather Farm chick starter for the first 3 weeks, then switch to our Chicken Grower. Use the Grower Feed until they hit maturation (which is when they start to lay) then switch to Sugar Feather Farm Adult Feed

We highly recommend using the Oil of Oregano in their water daily as a supplement to aid with digestion and overall health.

 

History of the Polish

The Poland or Polish is one of the oldest poultry breeds, but nothing to do with Poland! The name comes from ‘Polled’ referring to the crested poll that distinguishes the breed. Poland fowl had a class in the first London poultry show in 1845 and the breed was standardized in 1865.

Polish chickens are listed in the APA Standard of perfection.

We absolutely love this breed! They are hilarious, Polish are fun. Very quirky, friendly, clumsy and silly. Our kids just love handling them. They make great eye candy and conversation starters. We get a lot of people asking about this breed when they visit. All visitors are captivated when they come to the farm.

Pre-ordered adults and hatchlings may be picked up by appointment. To safeguard our birds from exposure to disease brought in by visitors, in accordance with the provisions of the National Poultry Improvement Plan, areas where birds are kept are off limits. However you are welcome to look at all the breeds and interactions, it is a site to see.
