    I've been told she is an Australorp but I have looked them up and she doesn't look like the pics I have seen. Any help would be appreciated.

    that is a mix. one of her parents was a crested breed my guess on that part with the clean legs would be a polish mix

    That is a Funky Chicken!

    I'm not much on crested breeds, so will defer to hdowden on what the crested parent was. I'll just say she's a mixed breed hen with one crested parent. That comb is something!

    Thank you. She is very dominant in the coop. :) She started laying right away and then quit two weeks later, I have been doing everything I can think of to make sure she is not stressed and ensure she is happy. Not having much luck yet.
