Bantam Polish were recognized as a breed according to the American Poultry Association (APA) Standard of Perfection in 1883. Non-Bearded White was the first recognized coloration, and it wasn't until1938 when the Non-Bearded White Crested Black variety was accepted. Bantam Polish can now be found in many varieties including:
- Bearded & Non-Bearded White
- Bearded & Non-Bearded Buff Laced
- Bearded & Non-Bearded Silver
- Bearded & Non-Bearded Golden
- Non-Bearded White Crested Black
- Non-Bearded White Crested Blue.
Bantam Polish are not true bantams as they do have a Large Fowl counterpart. Bantam Polish can be found in the APA's All Other Combs Clean Legged Bantams class.
Our White Crested Black Bantam Polish Breeder Rooster
Bantam Polish generally lay 150-200 Small - Medium sized White eggs each year. Personally, we have never had any of our Polish hens go broody. They can make quite a bit of noise as they are startled easily (due to their crests). If they are not handled, like any bird, Polish can become flighty and standoffish. But, when worked with, we have found some of our Polish to be the most endearing sweethearts you have ever met! (One hen we used to have would jump on our heads/shoulders every time we entered her pen 🥰)
Our White Crested Black Bantam Polish Flock
Please keep in mind that although our WCB Bantam Polish would not be disqualified from a show, they are only pet/hatchery quality which is something we are slowly working to improve.
Although we are breeding our Polish to the SOP, we do not believe in breeding extremely large crests that impair their vision.
