    I would say minorca just because I have an andalian hen and she doesn't look at all like your girl. My Beatrix keeps her tail up like a game hen, I guess cause it's in her bloodline, lol, and has obvious patterns in her feathers and a HUMONGOUS comb/wattles...here's her pic:

    Beatrix looks like she is wearing a hat. Is that her comb?

    LOL lanae! Yes, that is her COMB! Impressive, huh?? lol

    She prefers the "side swept" look evidently lol

    After looking at pics of minorcas online, older mountain, I do believe that is what you have there. But their combs do get HUGE like my girls'...call it their "crown" : )
