    Looks like a Siccilian Buttercup to me, but a picture of the comb would help.

    Buttercups have very distinctive combs, and you can see those even at this young age. Does the comb look like a little crown?

    Gorgeous birds, but flighty. They are my husband's favorites, and we always have one or two around. I don't even know if they ever lay eggs for us, he just likes to see them.
