    I would agree with Polish cross. There is no feathering on her legs and from what I can tell, she only has 4 toes.

    Silkie crosses often have only four toes and no leg feathering. I had three of them, sired by a Cochin/Silkie cross rooster over BR hen.


    Here's one of the Poufy Head Sisters, Olivia, may she rest in peace:

    depends on if shes a first geniration or not. if shes a first then i would have to agree with the polish mix but if shes a 2nd genaration of some sort of half silkie and another breed then she could be silkie mixed. all the first genaration of silkie mixes i have seen have blue ear lobs and not that big of a poof, along with more black skin and feathered legs. i am leaning more towards the polish mix than the silkie
