    It's not either. It's a cross breed, probably with Silkie in its ancestry.

    I would agree, although it almost looks like a Watermaal. Unlikely, given how rare the breed is.

    He said cross.
    Dark comb, dark legs and crest indicate silkie cross, but lack of foot feathering does not.
    Possible Polish and D'Anvers cross.
    Where did you get him from?

    Yes, it does have the look of that breed, and its legs are clean. But the comb type and color seem more in line with a Silkie cross, to me.

    Neither. I agree with @JedJackson that it is most likely a crossbred carrying silky DNA. It's most likely an f2 or later cross.
