    She's a mid size chicken...not as small as my bantams but not quite as big as my full size hens! My neighbor bought her & originally thought she was an American Easter egger but then she grew up to look like she does!

    It has a blue earlobe so it definitely have silky genes in it, the rest I can't imagine, maybe some crested cream legbar

    Definite Silkie ancestry---feathered legs, black skin, I thought I saw 5 toes?
    The color and amount of crest tell me the other parent could easily be a gold laced Polish.

    cute little mix. You should get some fun, funky chicks from her and those roosters.
