    A beautiful chicken indeed. The fur (I know it is feathers) looks to be like a silkie. The black comb and wattles may have some distant Ayam Cemani genes. Silkies also have 5 toes, and their skin is dark, so check these 2 things

    Hatchery quality Silkie. It's not unheard of to see straight combs from hatchery stock.
