    Blue legs, blue lobes, and about 3.5 pounds. Super docile (even after I trimmed her feathers so she can see) with a distinctive voice.

    She's a beautiful bird - great job on styling her 'fro'.

    I'm far from an expert on this, but I've never seen that much of a crest on a bird that didn't have a vaulted skull. I've also never seen a vault on a bird that wasn't either pure Polish or Silkie or another of the crested breeds. What your bird looks like to me is pure Black Crested White Polish. It's not a color I've ever owned, so I don't know about the earlobe color, but several of the colors of Polish that I have owned had blue/black legs and white lobes. I'm curious - why do you think she's a mix?

    Because I didn't realize there was a Black Crested White Polish breed! :) Thanks! Also, she does have a vaulted scull... just hard to see. Here is a baby picture :}[​IMG]
