Polish chickens are a long-established breed with record dating back to the 16th century. They were originally known as Paduan or Patavinian fowls and are known as Polish Large Fowls in the British Poultry Standard. Polish chicks are known for having feathers that grow from a knob in the skull of their head, giving them a recognizable crest. White Crested Blue chicks have white crests while the remainder of the body ranges from black to light gray to almost white. They have clean, white legs and feet, though darker chicks may have some black. If a comb is present, it is of the V-type. Adults have a white crest, that may have a small group of blue at the base of the crest. Most of the remaining plumage is slate blue laced with black. The males head is black, while the wing primaries and lower webs are slate blue without lacing.
