    Looking at some chicken breeds and saw one called a Cream Legbar. I then remembered Cin has a Plymouth Rock hen that looks like she's constantly angry because her head feathers are always up. Cream Legbar has the same thing going on. Could she be a mix of the two, or is she just an angry birb? 20190219_104634.jpg 20190219_104645.jpg

    Maybe. But there are a lot of crested breeds, and she is very likely crossed with one of them instead. My Polish/Cochin cross pair has head feathers like that. Does she lay green eggs?

    EDT: The big crests on silkies and polish are caused by a combination of a weakness at the back of the skull, and the crest itself. If you cross one of those breeds with a regular-skulled breed, the crest looks pretty similar to what you have.

    Huh, interesting. Yeah, she lays like, mint-colored green eggs, if that makes sense.

    She is an F1 Easter Egger. She is a Legbar cross with either Cuckoo Marans or a Barred Plymouth Rock.
    Where do you get her?

    This bird in my show bird book reminds me of her but you can see your hens earlobes and this bird has a muff that makes you not see it
    Also you can’t see in picture but this bird has a split comb
    It’s a Brabant-cuckoo hen

    She could also have barred Plymouth Rock

    What color is her legs she also reminds me of a silver cuckoo maran hen

    Also has the looks of a barred holland

    None of these hens lay mint colored eggs though so I don’t know

    She’s very beautiful but I think she might be a certain breed that doesn’t have a crest and just she has a special crest
    I wonder if it happens from cross breeding certain breeds
    Very lovely hen

    Legbar cross.

    She has a crest, it's not her head feathers raised up. I doubt she is angry, it just looks like that because the feathers go over her eyes a little.

    Definitely not a barred rock. I agree, since she lays green eggs, that she's a first generation legbar cross to make easter eggers.
