Supposed to be a polish, but where's the fro?

    These were taken about 2 weeks ago. Still NO fro and large white patches on the wing feathers:

    Is it a Polish or a mix?

    Nope, it's actually quite big. She was born with a couple of SIlkies and Cochins. It's smaller than the giant Cochins, but maybe a tint bigger than the Silkies of the same age.

    Looks just like a silver seabright, right down to the blue legs.
    If it was going to have a fro, it would have had a poof as a chick and the quills would have been in by now.


    I'm guessing it's a cross then. Of some kind.

    If it is a cross of some sort I would say no polish was involved in that act [​IMG]

    HMMM.... looks a bit like a silver spangled hamburg-considering it has a rose comb and is bigger than a bantam... The feathers of this breed should be white with black tips, although your seem to be black with white tips!!!... You might want too look up silver spangled hamburgs...
    Your pics look like professionals!!!
