    best thing for you to do to get an evaluation on your bird is to post a picture so people can give you an opinion on her.

    Vaulted or not doesn't matter about the large crest, I have seen plenty of non-vaulted silkies have crests just as large as a vaulted bird. Also a non-vaulted can still throw vaulted offspring.

    The off coloring is just from the lighting she has no leaking or anything.
