Silver Laced Polish Chicken

The Silver Laced Polish is a beautiful heritage breed, they are a Polish chicken, but the color pattern is a stunning silver lacing, hence the name. They are recognized by their large crests and quirky looks. They are a calm docile bird ideal for confinement or urban situations. The hens can be quite chatty and the roosters temperaments vary, the cockerels can be possessive of the hens and make great protectors. 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.  The color pattern is not easy to maintain and do, takes a lot of work for us. They come in smooth feathers and frizzle. We are very proud of our line and have sought after for strong genetics and coloring.  Our breeding flock can tolerate the harsh Vermont winters and hot summers. We are pleasantly surprised on their hardiness. They are truly a work of art, a must site to see! We have both the standard and bantam size Polish.

Extra care and maintenance must be given to their crests as it can restrict their vision sometimes causing startled behavior. If free ranging the crests can obstruct their vision and more susceptible to predation. 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. 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.
