Is this hen a black faverolle?

This is the most timid bird...I can't get within 6 feet of her! She's so terrified of me. When I bought her the guy said she was a black Faverolle, but I'm not 100% sure he was right. The other day I snuck up on her, and when she turned her head it looked like she had two combs...a double comb? Is that possible or normal? I wish I could get closer to her to inspect. I can't tell how many toes she has either. She is definitely feather footed. She's also much smaller than my golden comet hen, and the one time I held her she was extremely plump.

What do you think?

If it matters, she has laid one egg and it was small and bright white.

*ETA*

Found another picture...

I don't think she is a favorelle, her body shape just doesn't seem right and they generally are pretty friendly calm birds. I have salmon ones but she just doesn't strike me as a favorelle unless she is just a poorly bred one, I have a few from sandhill that are excuse the french butt ugly, but they are friendly.

Definately not a Black Faverolle, her comb is all wrong and from what I see her leg colors are yellow greenish instead of black and I dont see any fifth toes on her.

Looks more like a crossbred EE bantam..........thats my wild guess.
