    The birds with the funky feathers on their heads are mixed breeds. Silkie, polish, something like that.

    The white one is a silkie bred to another breed. My proof is the unique black skin that is a dominant trait in silkies, the feathered legs, and small crest.
    The other is another mix but I can't tell what it is from.. maybe a polish???
