    My chick is about 6 weeks old, and I have no clue what she/ he is? I know that she's a mix bread for sure. I thought she might have been an Easter egger when she/he was young, but now she has feathers sticking up her head like a Mohawk (is that a trait of a type of chicken?) and I don't know what mix breed she could be anymore. Since she/he has frizzle feathers could it be that its part Cochin?? Any advice will help!! And if anyone thinks they know the gender, as I think it might be a she, but I could be wrong, would help lots. Thanks! :)

    I'm guessing pullet. I have no idea on breeds, but that is one awesome looking bird!

    Has she got 5 toes? Probably a frizzled cochin/silkie cross.

    If she has 5 toes and black skin then she would be.

    yeah so it's super weird, and she has a mohawk. I'm guessing she is part Cochin for the frizzle part, but I really want to know the other LOL! :confused:

    Since the pictures show her with no feathers on her legs, I don't think she's part Cochin. Any breed can be have the frizzle gene.

    Frizzled EE/polish is my best guess.
