See how I've grown - could I be some kind of silkie X?

    Here is my mystery white chick now 6 weeks old. I would just slap the EE label on him but for the whole mohawk thing. He is also very soft to the touch compared to my RIR and a lot lighter weight. ( He totally has chicken ADHD so I think he just runs all his food off) I'm just wondering if he could be some kind of silkie X? I really like his fan on top of his head - it suits his personality. Thanks all for your expert opinions!

    I'd say he's a polish x, but there's definately no silkie in him. He's definately got a crest. Maybe polish x oegb?

    Very pretty boy!

    When he was little I had thought he looked a little like an OEGB red pyle chick. Then he grew a fan...

    It cracks me up cuz when he is on "spaz patrol" and something is out of order he sticks that head piece straight up. I am not remotely kidding about chicken ADHD.

    All I have to do is walk out into the yard where they are "foraging" and he starts running in circles going "PEEEPP PEEEPP PEEEPPP!" Then he literally tries to crawl under my RIR and hide. The RIR just looks at him like - you idiot - it's the human that feeds us!
