    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!!!

    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.

    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? polish.jpeg
