    Goodness! Looks and sounds to me that it is a EE X a silkie. I say silkie because of the top knot and the color of the beak. [​IMG] Look at the skin, is it black? That would be another sure sign. Silkies have black skin. The green legs I would say are from an EE although Java's have willow legs too. But I am thinking that EE's are much more common. [​IMG]
