    This little one is now 4 weeks and I'm wondering what it could be. The feathers aren't smooth but they also aren't frizzles. Almost bent slightly with a wispy fluff of a tail and a top hat.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    I would say she's a mix. Where'd you get her?

    It has a decent size crest so just a crested silkie?

    You'll have to discuss with the seller to get a better idea. But, it's a mix of mixes......

    I'm thinking a good dose of Polish influence, mixed with SIlkie. But not a simple A x B cross. I'm thinking maybe second or third generation mix. Enough the recessive silkie feathers have matched back up, but you've lost the feathered legs and five toes. It also has way more crest than a silkie, hence the Polish blood.
