    rooster looks like a buff polish crossed with something with a pea comb. he has a small crest.

    not sure on the hen, do you know what color egg she lays?

    That's probably the best pic of him/his comb...

    would say buff lace polish being involved is a great guess. it would nicely explain the dominant white and weak traces of lacing he has. not sure about being cross as the crest is very small even for a cross plus the comb seems unaffected by polish duplex comb plus his legs are yellow(which is a recessive gene- polish have white skin) so mix rather than cross. as in second generation from a cross.

    that tail... so short and so squirrel(leans forward over the back) is a puzzler- what breed has that. The hen is probably related to him as they share the tail appearence. I wanted to suggest EE- great for pea comb source but that won't quite work.

    The hen is not related. Different years different sources. Got him from a small hobby farmer several hours away and got her from one nearby. Chances of relation are slim. Chances of having similar breeds is better. I would agree with a mix. The hobby farmer I got him from was incubating crosses and he was one of them. Nothing Polish looking that I saw though.
    I do know that he's pretty.. beyond that... [​IMG]
