I really like the Polish.You ought to name one Mozart because that's who he reminded me of.If I were to wash my chickens I would use baby shampoo because it is mild and won't burn the eyes or Dawn dish detergent to kill any existing bugs but it would be a a last option for infestation only due to the degreaser in it drying the bird's skin too much.You can pick up travel size bottles of the shampoo instead of buying a big bottle that takes up space.I'm sure it'll take the nasty off the Silkie's head.Good luck!!!
Yeah I can see them . now! !
They are all sooo pretty!
The first one looks hen to me, it doesn't have the wild thin crest feathers I've seen on polish roosters
Someone crows at 6 weeks old. The 3 pictures of the first bird - "he" has more wattle growth and red on his face. He's bigger, longer legs, and thicker legs. Am I positive? no.
Ah then maybe it's him. How are his crest feathers? Are they a bit more wispy?
No. Actually Polish don't really get sex characteristics until about 10 weeks.
Mozart sounds good.
Tonight I went to tuck them in and one was behind the wire crate and I took her out and she did not want to leave my arm! So I have a true love in the making. Hopefully it's a Lola and Laverne incarnate. I could cry.
Oh I hope so! Love the name Mozart, that sure does fit!
Yeah,it is a good name.Maybe he'll make beautiful music/crowing.
For me or the neighbors? LOL
Such cuties! I was looking at a reputable hatchery catalog so see what I wanted to order for the spring. I was definitely looking at the Polish, but it said that they do poorly in cold weather. Is this true?
I have 2 polish and they do fine in nj
Wait I didn't write I use a heat bulb. ...
I fixed it. Maryellen does not use a heat bulb.
