Buff Laced Polish CHICKEN

Buff Laced Polish chickens are a very rare breed known for their distinctive crests, often referred to as “top hats.” These European chickens have a gentle and docile temperament, but their crests can limit their vision, making them easily startled. Their toes and shanks are a delicate slate blue color, and their rich, golden buff feathers are neatly laced in creamy white. They are highly valued due to their graceful crests and lively gait.

Do Polish chickens lay eggs?

They are tenacious once they begin to lay eggs, but they do so later in the season. They don’t sit on their eggs until they hatch and hardly ever brood.

What is a Polish chicken?

The breed’s name is believed to have come from the Dutch word “pol,” which meaning large head. Polish birds come in nine different varieties; some have beards and some don’t.

The solid-colored varieties—the non-bearded golden, non-bearded silver, non-bearded white, and non-bearded buff laced—are typically hairless.
