The Polish Crested hen, is a nice addition to any flock. They aren’t considered a cold hardy breed, but they fair quite well in excessive heat. They confine well, are friendly, and docile. I’ve never had a Polish bully among the flock at either end of the pecking order. One nice quality of the Polish is they are very quiet. These ornamental birds weigh in between 4-5 pounds and lay about 3 white eggs a week, but usually take time off during the winter months.
Varieties: Bearded: Black Crested White, White Crested Black. Bearded & non-bearded: Golden, Silver, White, Buff Laced.
