    What is this color called? It almost looks like some sort of mille fleur/speckled variation 20180424_010213.jpg 20180424_010101.jpg Thanks!

    ...You did notice that the pale feathers are NOT chick down right? She is fully feathered with just a few tufts of down lingering on the edges of her feathers.

    Not a Polish. Legs are wrong color and it has the wrong comb for a Polish. You've got a very pretty mix breed. It'll likely end up being something similar to a Calico pattern.

    I've seen two others with the exact same crested bird....single combs, pink legs. I believe it's something called a Pyncheon bantam. :) One or more hatcheries sell them. Feel free to look it up! :D
