This guy has stumped many people and guesses are all over the map. I'm hoping for a more knowledgable or expert opinion. Many thanks!

I had a few that looked like him, they were Silkie/Ameraucana mixes.  If his father was an Ameraucana I think that means his daughters might lay colored eggs.  

I agree with the Aracauna as I have a purebred pulley that is colored almost exactly like him but what's getting me is his other half.

That comb almost looks like a Buttercup comb. And the crest certainly narrows down the possibilities, but no dark skin or feathered legs, so no Silkie there. Not Araucana, the rumpless gene is dominant. Not Ameraucana, the muffs and beard are dominant. Not Brahma, feathered legs are dominant.
Maybe Polish with Andalusian? Will the V-comb gene cause a single comb to double like that?

Ahh ok. He just doesn't look like anything anyone else has ever seen. All I had was Amercauna so it's back to the drawing board I guess lol
