There are a couple breeds of chickens that i think would look cool if they were mixed. Like a silver phoenix and a polish breed. If any one has done that, please post pics! And if you have other mixed breeds that look cool post those too but be sure to include the breeds its from:)

I have a very pretty Delaware/NN she is turning white with some black barring. She is 3 weeks old. At the scraggly stage but when she fully feathers she is going to be beautiful

If you mixed a phoenix with a nice long thick saddle to a polish with a heavy topknot, the offspring could be bred for a few generations to get birds with really long feathers in the topknot, because the length of the saddle is directly related to neck hackle length, which in turn is responsible for the length of the feathers in the topknot. I imagine the naked neck gene would not matter too much as it would not effect the topknot very much.
Do it.

Do it.

So that's why Polish naturally have such large, long tails. . .
