    my first thought was polish cross but after reading what you said its a silkie cross. Now it might be a polish/silkie cross, but I would think that this cross would produce a more polish like crest. Now as for the lacing, that could come from any laced bird

    yeah silkie sebright mix. very likely second or third generation from cross of silkie and sebright then the next generations were either mixed together or bred back to pure sebright. either way will make lots birds more or less like her.

    I saw the pic of the bird u have it is very similar exempt for the face mine has no red like the polish
    I have a silkie cross that has the same looking face but no lacing interesting that u believe it is a silkie or sebright cross I can breed her to my silkies and maybe get furry birds that will tell me she is indeed a silkie mix as far as the lacing I'm not sure who she got it from I also have a frizzle I can put her with but really I just liked her I don't think I will hatch any eggs from her soon as these mix birds ultimately become sacrifice animals round my town so I only want to allow hatch pure strain or frizzled birds that can b rehomed
