THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE FRIZZLES (SEE TEXT, PAGE 452) These fussy-feathered fowls are natives of the Far East. Their plumage peculiarity is of special interest to students of heredity (see page 402). @ National Geographic Society BEARDED SILVER POLISH (SEE TEXT, PAGE 438) The breed belies its name, for it originated, not in Poland, but in Italy. Its chief progenitor was the Polverara, indigenous to the province of Padua. In addition to the Bearded Silver shown above there are Golden, White, Black, and Buff-laced varieties. Note the muff on either side of the beard, found also in the Faverolle and in the Sultan.
