The Polish breed was named for the Polish army's feathered caps because it resembled their feathered crests. They originated in Spain and were brought to Holland where the Dutch perfected their coloring. They became popular in France, then started appearing in the U.S. around the 1830s. A great breed, very docile and even tempered. They are easily surprised due to their feathers limiting their eyesight, making them vulnerable to predators.
