    How old is it?

    If its older than about 16-18 weeks, then its a pullet. It most likely a cross of either a polish, or a similar breed with a crest.

    Anyone want to throw out some thoughts on what kind of breed?

    I would guess it's a Polish mix. I think that's a fairly big crest with no other Silkie traits, so I'm doubtful that she's a silkie cross.

    What does the comb look like?

    It's a mixed breed, somewhat resembling a Legbar hen (but obviously not pure Legbar).

    Pullet.

    As for the breed, my guess is that its a Polish or Silkie mix, probably with Production Red.
