Nbr 5 has a little domed noggin! Normally, Polish breed chickens have domed skulls in order to accommodate the full crest of feathers. Memnoch & Mercury didn’t have domed skulls because they developed partial crests instead of full crests (apparently, 1st gen of a cross between a full crest with a no crest equals a partial crest). I’m excited to see what type of crest this little nugget ends up with. I’m excited all around to see how he develops. His feathers are black & white, whereas M&M’s feathers were yellow & black after they hatched. I didn’t follow the correct breeding method needed to create my own strain (I should have bred Memnoch with the Ithakē ladies & Mercury with Odysseus), but I think it’s safe to say I’m not really the most serious of breeders. Maybe I’ll try to get more like M&M next year.

As far as personality, all five nuggets are ornery as hell. Nbr 5 was shoving his way into the middle of 1-4 so he could be apart of the commotion while staying warm from their body heat. Nbr 1-4 are already trying to use their wings to get out of the brooder when the lid is off (Nbr 2 has figured it out already). This batch is going to be a handful.
