    It sounds as if she may very well be a cross.

    I'm guessing that you have a mix.

    She definitely sounds like a Silkie mix. The only way to know for certain is to post a pic of her. Trying to ID her without a picture is like shooting in the dark.

    Sounds like a mix to me, or at least a hatchery quality Silkie. Photos would help.

    She's definitely a Silkie mix (either with a Dominique or Barred Rock)

    She is a mix, her coloring isn't natural to silkies and her feathering looks off too but it might just be the color pattern.

    Looks like a Silkie mix to me, too.
