    I've loved watching her mowhawk grow in over the past few days. Got her from the bantam mix at TSC. Any ideas? DSCN0843.JPG

    Here is her baby photo! They grow up so fast. *Wipes tear from under eye*

    Also she is a bigger breed or standard size. She's double the size of the bantam baby we have in there.

    Can you explain to me why you say its a Brabanter?
    I was going to say Golden Laced Polish. Seems odd that you would get one of those from TSC. The only hatchery I know of that sells those is Ideal.

    I live in Texas literally 3 hours from Ideal. Our TSC stores could very much be buying from them seeing as their shipping prices are stunning.

    Crest is different than a Polish crest. Even as chicks, you can clearly see the crest on Polish. This chick did not have a very pronounced crest as a chick.

    Almost reminds me of a Appellenzer Spitzhauben ( yes I know i didn't spell that right, I'm so ashamed) but they only come in silver laced color right? Never saw a gold one.

    I had a baby Spitz and it looked just like that but a different color
