Tolbunt Polish Chicken

The Tolbunt Polish is a light, soft feathered pure breed, they are a Polish chicken but the color pattern is Tolbunt hence the name. They are recognized by their large crests and beautiful Tolbunt patterning. This is a pattern of brown, black and white, this is a laced mottled pattern. They are a calm docile bird ideal for confinement or urban situations. The hens can be quite chatty and the roosters can be friendly. Children love to hold Polish chickens and play with their hair. They can make great companions. Need to add some character and spice to your flock, this is the breed. We call them the rock and roll chickens, punk rock or glamor girls! So beautiful and captivating like a work of art. All your neighbors will be envious of their beauty.

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 including Tolbunt – a very rare and much sought after color pattern.  The color pattern is not easy to maintain and do, takes a lot of work for us. They come in frizzled and smooth feathers. 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!

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! When growing we consider them more fragile and they do grow slower than other chickens similar in age so keep in mind. On the flock hierarchy they would be considered on the lower end so we don’t recommend putting them in with more dominant birds.

Polish chickens are on the Livestock Conservancy List as “watch” status. A portion of the purchase of this breed is donated to the Livestock Conservancy, for breed preservation. Polish chickens in general tend to get Marek’s Disease – a very deadly uncurbable chicken disease. We vaccinate all our birds for this disease and offer that safety to our customers. It is the right thing to do. Remember, we are a farm not a hatchery so our flocks are smaller in size. There is a limit on the number of birds and eggs you can order so we can make sure to meet demand. This is one of our more popular breeds so please keep in mind you might be waiting longer than expected for this breed.


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. Tolbunt Polish were brought to the US in the late 1900’s.

Polish chickens are listed in the APA Standard of Perfection. The Tolbunt pattern is not recognized at this time.
