    I had a picture of this girl on here before, it wasn't a good picture and some said that she was not polish. Here is a close up of her face. What do you think.[​IMG][/img] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Let me know do you think she is polish??

    If it's a polish it's no girl. From the pictures the hat feathers don't look rounded. They look spikey. Is she laying eggs? Maybe if she is she is a mix of some sort.

    That's a boy, and, well, did you get it from a private person or a hatchery/feedstore? Either way, it's not a purebred Polish. (the comb wrong, the color is wrong, and the crest size is pretty small)

    That's a girl. It is a butterfly comb, my cochin x polish has one. And no, yours ins't a polish, its a mutt [​IMG]

    That rooster also has a butterfly comb. But, Im sure that the OP's one is a girl.

    Butterfly comb = V Comb X Single Comb (eg. Polish x Cochin)
    Houdans here in Australia are ment to have Butterfly combs.

    Quote:The OP's has a modified V-Comb and the starting of a Buttercup comb. It is similar to your Leaf Type Comb (what you are calling a "Butterfly comb")

    Here in Australia it is called a Butterfly comb, not sure about the US.
