    With the dark skin, crest, and feathered legs it looks like a Silkie mix. And it's female.

    Looks like a mix with Polish, Cochin, and possibly Game hen. I'm no expert, but that are the traits I see. As to gender, No idea, Lets see what others think..
    The head of your chicken looks very similar to a hen I had. Was a mix of Cochin and Serama. Possibilities are diverse.
