    Thank you. I thought she looked familiar but I could not place her, I was probably seeing the silkie in her since I've had those before.

    Yep, Silkie mixed with something very upright, not Cochin as is so common.

    I get headaches trying to angle my head to view photos like that. If you use photoshop or picassa, you could rotate your photos to make them Right Side Up.

    The odd thing is I did in the gallery on my phone and on my phone the looked right but when I uploaded them they where back like this. I was going to do it again on Photobucket where I uploaded them to link them here but could not find the edit feature. I apologise for them being sideways in the post.

    If very small(under 2lbs) I'd say silkie/game bantam, if med small or smallish (2-4lbs)I'd say silkie/standard game of some sort.
