What breed is this hen?

This is a school project chicken I got.

She was completely unexpected as I asked for a Sebright but wasn’t able to get one, so instead my teacher gave me a random bantam that he had no idea what breed it was. So it’s kind of a mystery, the Internet is telling me she’s some sort of Leghorn but I hope you guys can give me a better confirmed answer. Her age is unknown as she was already laying eggs when I got her
It has some color leakage on the back in an odd fashion.

The only crested bantams I know of are Pyncheons, Barbu de watermaels, and an (extinct?) breed of Swedish bantam.

I’d say it’s mutt. But I’d like to see what other people think.
Looks to me like a polish / australorp mix. It has a body like a polish and maybe 1/4 the plume of a top hat... but those black legs are australorpy. My polish all have grey legs.
Thank you all for your opinions and answers, I have come to the conclusion that she is most definitely a mutt. She does have some pretty nice features for a show chicken though :)
