Polish chickens are an old breed, an ancient statue of a Polish is housed in the Vatican. It wasn’t until the 21st Century that the tolbunt color variety was created. Tolbunt is the German word for wildly colorful, or in English jazzy. Tolbunts were created in E Germany while it was still a satellite of the SU, but w/ the reunification of Germany tolbunts were released to W Europe for the 1st time. They were shown in the Netherlands in 2000 & imported in small #'s to the US shortly thereafter.
Swedish Flower Hen This breed, for more than half a millenium isolated in small villages in Sweden, had made the leap across the Atlantic for the first time as part of Greenfire Farms’ ongoing program of introducing rare chickens to America. Until now, very few people in the world (including most Swedes) have ever had the opportunity to see living examples of this breed, let alone the ability to own and raise them.
