    Looks like a mix of several color varieties. There is no recognized color variety that looks like that. She's very pretty!

    So she's not a true Polish, correct? The more I look at her it does seem that she's a mix.

    She doesn't look like any real variety--more like a mix of varieties or even breeds. Beautiful bird, though!

    Well, she may be a true Polish, which is her breed. But she doesn't look like a true variety of the Polish breed.

    Oh ok, got it, I think. [​IMG] She could be a true Polish breed, but a mix that created a different variety of the breed that's not really recognized, is that right?
