If she's a mix with something larger, she may be much larger than a normal Silkie. Or, she could be a Polish mix, which can be standard sized.

Yeah.. forgot to mention. The little mutt's parents are Silkie Roo/Standard Ameraucana Hen. Also... the little mutt I pictured is only like a month old. Not even 100% sure it is a pullet. And actually, silkies are pretty big bantams, weighing between 32 and 36 oz.

I know Polish have crests, but thats the only feature that bird has in common with them. \|/ Below, the mutt/male polish/female polish from left to right.

I looked up both breeds and I think you were right with silkie she is all black. Corse I don't know about her bones or meat but everything you can see is black.

I was just going to edit my post to say that xD

Look up "black silkie mixes" in a search engine and press "go" , there are a lot of birds that look like both of ours.
