    I am concerned about the way she is standing in the picture - her tail is down, tucked. Then how she's laying in the other picture. Well, if you have other birds, I would keep her quarantined until you know she is healthy. (Mellow is nice, but can be because she is ill.)

    She's a pretty bird. Looks like she has a rose or pea comb. She could be a mix or you could look for breeds that have those combs and you might find she's a pure breed. In the two pictures I'm unable to really get a sense of her coloration or if she has fluff around her face (like an easter egger would).

    is she squatting for him? The beak might be a type of crossbeak. I don't see any pictures but I saw your other post...
