Customer Product Reviews
We bought a few of these to arrive the first week in March 2013. We entered our best girl in the fair in August, and won Reserve Grand Champion Large Fowl, Best of Breed, and 1st in Class. She is amazing, our Oreo has a perfect large round crest and her black feathers are very glossy. To top it off she is laying a really nice size white egg every other day, in the dead of winter.
In my order of chicks my free chick is a White Crested Black Polish and he is so cute, I've never had a exotic chicken, so Im really excited, Thanks McMurray!!
What an amazing place!! All of the chicks arrived full of energy. They were shipped on Sunday and arrived on Monday at 9am in western NY!!! I won't order anywhere but Mcmurray Hatchery!
My order came in for one of these about five-six weeks ago and everybody pokes fun about how odd looking my polish looks. We named her "Shwobby" or aka, Q Tip because of her "Cotton ball" on her head. She is a joy though, and a good girl.
I got two hens in my first order and another hen and a rooster in my second order. I took my first two hens to the state fair and they took 1st and 2nd. These are beautiful birds that i highly recommend getting!
Thank you McMurray for my wonderful little Iris. She provided me with plenty of entertainment until the day she died. The White Crested Black Polish is an awesome breed and they are hysterical to watch.
I plan on ordering one of these chickens next year for show at 4-H! I seen one at West Fair, and knew I wanted one. I look forward to getting one from Murray McMurray, for this will be my first time ordering from here. :)
What a cute and lively little guy I purchased. He came with 2 Blue Cochins and 2 Light Brahmas and he is certainly a little show off. I love him.
I have shown White Crested Black Polish in the state fair and every time I get Grand Champion or Reserve Champion. I get all my chickens from Murray McMurray Hatchery and I just wanted to thank you so much.
I have 5 White Crested Black Polish, and I love them. I will get all my chicks from Murray McMurray Hatchery from now on.
We got a male white crested black polish as our free gift, and we just adore him! He's got a great personality, and he's a beautiful bird. We took him to our 4H county fair where he won Champion of the Continental class and reserve grand champion of the whole exhibition division!
These chickens are fantastic! Both hen and rooster have beautiful crests and they are very friendly! My hen, Dandilion, likes to follow me aound and loves to sleep in my jacket on cold winter days!
I am 14 years old and bought a couple of your White Crested Black Polish hens and I really am impressed with them.(even my parents like them). When they first came they were healthy and peeping. I intend to show these awesome birds. THANKS MURRAY MCMURRAY!I will most definently be buying from you again next year! -Nathan M. Quincy,WA
In march we purchased an assortment of meat and layers. With our purchase we gave my two children a choice of two hens apiece to care for. My son chose the black crested polish hens. At two weeks, we needed to seperate our two polish chicks, they were being pecked on unmercifully. Then we received four ducklings and put them together with the two hens. Now at 11 weeks, the two hens and the four ducks are unseperable. They follow us all around the farm and the hens jump up and perch on our arms and shoulders. They are the hit at all our family gatherings. Thanks.
This breed stands bad weather just as well as most of the heavier breeds we ordered. All of them have always had great health. These birds do not go far from the coop. They are my favorite type of chicken.
I received a White Crested as my suprise gift and he has really become part of the family. From day one, his personality was spunky and bright. At 9 weeks he's irreplaceable. Thank you McMurray's!
