    I got this lovely lady (as far a I know) at a flea market this morning for my sister. Not sure of the specific type of top knot, though, or her age. Anyone know? [​IMG]

    It looks like a crossbred polish! I had some cross bred polish and the "poof" on the head looked very similar to that![​IMG]

    a body shot would help but the crest looks like a silkie's crest. how many toes?, feathered legs? and is the face blackish looking?

    I'm thinking silkie mix but a better picture would help. [​IMG]

    She does have feathery legs, and her face is black. We do know she's very young:) I will try to get a better picture of her. Today was a big day for her, I said a little prayer that she does well tonight, her first night away from her home farm.

    Ger comb was tiny, barely there. I got her for my sister, and our Mama was going to keep during her quarantine. Well, Miss "Billina" escaped from a pen my Mama has used to keep chickens for decades while she was at work. We can't figure out how this is possible, as the poles and fencing are cemented in the ground! Made us sad and worried; she was so sweet and seemed to enjoy being held.

    Looks like a feathered silkie. Does she have feathered legs and 5 toes?
