    We helped save a very sick chicken over the weekend, but would like help identifying the breed. The owner bought thinks Acey is a hybrid. Thanks.

    Looks like a silkie Cochin cross. It definately has silkie in there because of the 5 toes and that poof on the head.

    Yes, looks like a mix. Could have some Silkie or Polish in it.

    If it had silkie OR cochin, it should have feathered legs, no?

    That is what I immediately thought. Hmmm.. maybe a houdan cross? They have five toes and a crest, with no foot feathering. Just throwing out a guess. Very interesting looking bird.
