- Silver Laced Polish Chicken
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.

very docile & great health Review by tay
BREED: Firstly i've always liked the polish because they are so docile. and i think all of the polishes are very pretty, but these are just my all-time favorite. their feathers look so beautiful it's unreal. I gave a whole bunch of these to a mamma hen, but we sadly had a predator attack and only 4 of the chicks from that batch had survived. those 4 though are almost full-grown now, (1 rooster and 3 hens) and i enjoy them so much i think next time another hen goes broody i'll have to get more.
CACKLE: like all my chicks from Cackle, they arrived happy & healthy. i've never had a problem from them; it's my first hatchery pick. There is no better place i've found. (Posted on 6/13/2019)

I am happy with the way they turned out, I plan on experimenting and crossing the breeds together. I'll see what happens! Review by Tott
I ordered 24 polish chicks (Buff-Laced and Silver-Laced). I received them on 3/30/2016 with only one having not arrived alive. Thank you so much, now it has been a little over five months now and I plan on entering two (one of each kind) in the county fair this month, I will post how they do! (Posted on 9/7/2016)

Thanks Guys! Excellent Order Review by Mark Ohio March 2014
100% live arrival when I picked up this morning at Post Office. It's been many years since I ordered from you , from the looks of today's chicks that won't happen again. Excellent chicks, strong solid bodies, vitality and good crest on. One jumped into the brooder to drink before I even had a second to dip its beak. Never have I had that before even in ones I hatch.
