If you’re looking for a chicken with style and pizzazz, Meyer Hatchery’s Polish Chickens are for you. The White Crested Black variety of Polish have black bodies and a white crest of feathers on their head. Some will have beards, some will not, and they will all have an unusual v-comb.
Not only will you have the coolest chicken in the neighborhood, but these lovely ladies will also supply you with 2-4 white eggs each week. They are also a quiet breed. Be careful when free-ranging though because that crest of feathers can limit their vision, so they are not as good as other breeds at seeing predators. Read more about the Polish Chicken on our Breed Spotlight over on the Meyer Hatchery Blog.
Average mature weight: roosters 6 lbs., hen 4 1/2 lbs.
