Pullets: White Crested Black Polish
|Shipping Week||Availability||Other Breeds Available|
Don't have the time, equipment or inclination to care for chicks? Or were you ready for fresh eggs yesterday? This is the ticket! At 6-7 weeks old, these started pullets are ready to go outdoors, with no heat or special care requirements. Our six-week started pullets are floor-raised and socialized with humans, and their beaks are intact--we never trim.
Polish are a very special and unique breed of chicken with their huge bouffant crest of feathers and v-shaped comb. They are tame but their behavior can be a bit wacky since their crest limits their vision. When in a flock with more aggressive breeds, Polish will tend to be on the low end of the pecking order. Egg laying is varied in this breed - some lay well and some very poorly. In short, Polish are sweet, beautiful exhibition birds and can be good layers in the backyard flock, but they're not reliable. Please note that our flocks produce a mix of bearded and non-bearded Polish.
All 6-week-old chickens are shipped USPS Express Mail, and are vaccinated for Marek's and MG (killed).
