She looks like a Polish/Andalusian cross.
Interesting take. She doesn't have a crest though and also very short in height for Andalusian / polish mix.
In those pics above she does have a small crest. She reminds me of a Blue Breda, though she doesn't have feathered legs. Maybe a Breda mix.
Thank you. I checked pretty well and did not find any crest. I will look up for breda pics
Those feathers that stand up a little behind her comb is her crest. Small but there......
I thought those feathers are called tuft and crest is the hard bony and pointy top of head? Now I am confused. I checked ISBAR breeds on internet and found them to be very similar but little taller
With that comb, she's definitely a mix, she's not going to be some rare, exotic breed. The crest and clean legs lends itself to one parent having Polish, and the other parent having blue genes. The white lobes also say both parents were probably white egg layers, so Polish/Andalusian is as good a guess as any.
Crest is the feathers growing on top of the head.
Tufts are long feathers growing from the sides of the face.
Muffs are feathers growing around the face, shorter than tufts.
Beards are feathers growing under the face.
Donrae, that is great information to help know the diff between crest and tuft. One more question. There are hens, which do not have feathers on their head but still have the pointy bony head. What do we call that head bump?
I don't really do exotics, so I'm not sure. Are you talking about a vaulted skull, like silkies have?
