Contrary to belief, the breed name Polish doesn’t come from Poland. They were named after
the Polish army’s feathered caps because it closely resembled their feathered crests. The
chickens originated in Spain but were then brought to Holland, and eventually the Dutch
perfected their coloring. They became a fairly popular bird in France, then started appearing
in the United States around the 1830s and 40s. They are a great breed and are docile and
even-tempered. They are easily surprised and sometimes nervous due to their feathers
limiting their eyesight. This makes them more vulnerable to predators. Blue coloring can result in Black, Blue or Splash feathering, blue is not a guaranteed color.
