    This chick on the far left has a crested head similiar to the head of a male ring neck pheasant, not sure of the sex, hatched it out of a variety of eggs I got from the local egg lady who has ameracaunas, barred rock, red layers and astralorps.What's up with this crested head look?

    None of those breed should have had crests. I would guess some sort of Polish mix, though, or possibly a Cream Legbar mix.
