RareBreedAuctions.com is dedicated to preserving America’s rare and heritage breeds of poultry and livestock. We believe that the best way to save these breeds is to create a market for these animals where buyers and sellers can meet and bargain in a fair and professional environment facilitated by state-of-the-art technology. RareBreedAuctions.com is committed to providing that opportunity to you, the buyer or seller of rare breeds.

Other auction sites created by livestock experts have failed the test of time due to a lack of technical proficiency and poor customer service. At RareBreedAuctions.com, we specialize in raising livestock, but we also make our living in developing and maintaining customer relationships through online communication.

We are committed to building a strong and ethical community that allows members to sell and bid with confidence. We pledge to be responsive, helpful and friendly to our members and guests, and we encourage you to tell us about your experiences so that we can continuously improve our service.

We welcome you to our community and look forward to meeting your needs.

10 Greenfire Farms Day-Old White Crested Cuckoo Polish Chicks

The winner of this auction will receive 10 or more unsexed day-old white crested cuckoo Polish chicks, a flamboyant breed we recently imported from the Netherlands.

Polish chickens are so outrageous in their appearance that for many years they have been popular in America’s backyard flocks. Typically, we’re drawn to the “peasant breeds” of chickens; hardy free-range survivors who elevate function over form. But, a few years ago we visited a large poultry show in Europe, and we were blown away by the quality and flamboyant good looks of some white crested cuckoo Polish that were on exhibit and ultimately received high scores from the picky European judges. There was just something cool about them that made it hard to look away. We were so impressed by the quality of these birds that we made arrangements to import the birds from the Netherlands despite the fact that this breed is well-represented in America.

Despite their name, Polish chickens are believed to have originated in the Netherlands centuries ago. It’s possible “Polish” is not derived from a misplaced association with the country of Poland but instead stems from the Middle Dutch word pol which means “head;” a reference to their astounding feathered crests. At any rate, the breed has been around for more than half a millennium. Paintings from as early as the 15th Century depict birds similar to Polish.

On our farm the white crested cuckoo Polish has proven to be a hardy bird despite their decidedly non-utilitarian features. As soon as they hatch the beginnings of the signature feather crests are evident on the chicks. The roosters have a crest that cascades from the head in a manner similar to the dreadlocks of the monster in the movie Predator, and the hens have an almost perfectly round crest that makes them look like animated Q-Tips. The hens also lay an abundance of small- to medium-sized white eggs, and the feather crests if left untrimmed so obscure the fields of vision that they are easy to catch, which is a good thing, because the birds seem to enjoy being held.

The pictures on this auction represent the quality of the stock that Greenfire Farms is currently working with. The winning bidder will receive 10 or more unsexed day-old chicks. They will be vaccinated for Marek's. These chicks will be shipped within three weeks of the close of this auction. We guarantee live delivery and the health of the chicks for 72 hours after you receive them. The auction winner pays an additional $35 in shipping costs.


We do not ship outside the lower 48 states.

Please pay at the close of auction.

By bidding, you agree to our Terms and Conditions.

If you have questions about an animal being auctioned the time to ask those questions is well before the close of the auction. Doubts, unanswered questions, second-guessing, an unanticipated or sudden change in personal circumstances, or buyer's remorse are not valid reasons for a winning bidder to refuse to pay after an auction closes.
  4. Read the text of the auction carefully before you bid. Once you bid your bid cannot be undone. Your bid is a legally binding offer to the seller, and if you are the high bidder your offer is automatically accepted and becomes a legally binding contract under which you are obligated to pay the seller.

  6. Sellers must accurately describe the animal they are selling including the pedigree of the animal.

  9. A person may not send profane or harassing messages about an auction.
  10. A seller advertising imported poultry must be prepared to provide a copy of the USDA import permit proving the legal importation of the poultry. Only legally imported poultry may be sold at auction.
  11. A seller or buyer may not use an auction or RBA-related tools to negotiate direct sales outside of an auction. This includes asking buyers to "gift" money via PayPal.
  12. A seller may not pre-sell hatching eggs or day-old chicks with a shipment date more than four weeks after the auction ends.
  13. This is a community. Be POLITE and courteous. If you are rude, you may be asked to leave.
  14. A seller will comply with all relevant government regulations including those related to the shipping of live birds and NPIP compliance.
