Valley Hatchery is excited to present our White Crested Black Polish Chicks, a captivating selection for poultry enthusiasts. Originating in the Netherlands, this Polish breed has been cherished in the United States since its recognition by the American Standard of Perfection in 1874. Renowned for their unique appearance, these chickens display a dramatic black body plumage, elegantly contrasted by their distinctive white crests, occasionally adorned with black feathers. As chicks, they charm onlookers with their sleek black bodies and quaint white ‘top hats,’ making them an instant favorite.
These birds are not only a feast for the eyes but also highly practical. Renowned for their consistent laying of white eggs, they produce around 200 medium to large eggs annually, without the tendency to go broody. This makes them a valuable addition to any flock, balancing beauty with utility. Adult White Crested Black Polish chickens, offered by Valley Hatchery in a non-bearded variety, exhibit a gentle and lively temperament. The roosters typically weigh around 6lbs, while the hens are slightly lighter at 4.5lbs. Their lifespan ranges from 6 to 8 years, ensuring a long-lasting companionship.
Ideal for both exhibition and as delightful pets, the White Crested Black Polish Chickens from Valley Hatchery offer a unique combination of visual allure and practicality. If you’re seeking to add a touch of whimsy and elegance to your coop, these chickens are a perfect choice. With their striking looks and dependable egg-laying capabilities, they are sure to be a cherished part of your poultry collection.
