Cackle Hatchery® offers for sale the bearded variety of the Silver Laced Polish chicken breed. This breed was thought to have originally come from the Netherlands but got its name when it was transported from Poland and introduced to England. This very old domesticated breed of poultry is mentioned as early as the sixteenth century in history. Several varieties were admitted to the American Standard of Perfection from 1874-1996.
The Polish breed is noted for being one of the most beautiful and ornamental breeds. They are prized exhibition and show fowl. The bearded and non-bearded of each variety can be found at shows throughout the United States. The Silver Laced Polish chicken is the most striking in appearance of the “Poland Fowls.” They have a full crest of feathers that grow out of a knob on the skull and large cavernous nostrils. Their plumage is silvery white, each feather laced with lustrous black. Breeders have worked for years to perfect the black lacing in the feathers. Hens lay small white eggs and are non-setters.
Cackle Hatchery® offers the BEARDED variety in Golden Laced Polish, White Polish, Silver Laced Polish and Buff Laced Polish. For the NON-BEARDED variety we offer the White Crested Black Polish, Blue Polish and the Splash Polish.
