    Scrolling through craigslist I found a "chickens and ducks" but with very little info. I recognized most of the breeds, but this one. I'm pretty sure the rumbling feeling in my wallet is pure impulse, but it's so beautiful. I know what the silkies are, but what is the chicken with crown on, or crest, looks like a crown though. ;)

    In the second picture, the bird on the far left. Would it be safe to assume that is a hen or does it just look younger? Sorry, I'm trying to learn, and have a way to go. Thanks for any help folks. :hugs

    The bird all the way on the left appears to be either a Golden Appenzeller Spitzhauben or a Polish-Silkie Cross.

    Thanks. I ended up not getting them. They sold before I could get to them.

    I did end up inheriting a bantam barnyard mix momma and 11 babies.

    They are all small, with the hen fitting in one hand. Most are in the same size range, but this little one. They do have Seramas there, and did say not all of they eggs where hers. It's likely not pure, but it is tiny, and I'm not very picky.

    So far they are very nice, with the hen being just a joy to handle.

    Pretty mixes. It looks like the hen and several of the chicks have some sebright in them.
