My mystery purebred bantam with a fuzzy puff-head and weird comb!

    This is a bantam I picked up. Supposed to be pure bred. It has an odd comb and a very puffy head! I don't know what it is!

    It doesn't have feathered feet, so I'm clueless.

    Here are some of his friends. Same puff-heads but totally different-looking comb.

    If the person selling you the chick said it is pure breed why didn't you ask what kind? Or are you just trying to play a riddle game ?

    Those definitely look like silkie mixes to me.

    They look like Silkie or Polish mixes to me.

    Silkie mixes most likely.

    Agreed! Silkie mix! My girl is silike/cochin cross and feathered in that way...although she did not end up getting that silkie poof. She has black feet/beak, pea comb and 5 toes and feathers are a mix of hairy and regular feathers.
