    So here are the two rescues again:
    Izzy, who I am pretty sure is an EE

    And then the mystery bird! What is she, and what is with her little neck frill? She has a spot on the back of her head where feathers curl up towards her beak!?

    And there are there tail feathers and hind ends.
    No idea how old they are.

    Maybe she has a tiny bit of polish in her?

    A little bit of polish? Hmm...I guess that would cause the feathers to point up towards her beak. Thanks [​IMG]

    They are both EE's (crosses) as they both have pea combs and beards. And both are girls.

    Any idea about the feathers? I was told possibly a bit of polish blood to Barby?
