    Couple years ago I brough a baby chick from my great grandmother and she had few chicks since then. I know her name in my country, but I am also looking for the american name of this breed. I could't figure it out.
    Here are some pics of her offsprings. Also I want to know how her head plumage is called. It is something similar to what polish chickens have, but smaller. 20190914_144826.jpg

    I’m replying to see what others say. I would have said she’s a mix. I tried searching on Google but can’t find anything on single combed, crested and feather legged pure breeds.

    I'm guessing she's a mix also- the feathered legs could come from a cochin parent, silkie, ?????? who knows what else. The crest makes me thing of crested legbars :idunno

    You'll probably have the best results if you post at "What breed or gender is this."

    What country are you in, as it may be a landrace breed? Because of the multiple base colors...

    I have Sultans, and I have seen Spitzhaubens at shows. Your birds look similar, but not exactly like either. Both breeds have horn combs, and your birds appear to have single combs, so there might be something else in the mix.

    I used feathersite.com's pictures for refreshing my memory on the Spitzhaubens:

    If you know the breed name in your country, you may be able to find it in feathersite.com's index.

    I thought maybe Pavlovski but she’s not bearded and I think they should be?

    I think I agree, after looking at the feathersite.com for them:

    I wouldn't go by the lack of a muff to rule it out. I have a pretty good line of Crevecoeurs, and once in a while one shows up without a beard.
