    I put up a post about Puff before but nobody knew. So I am hoping to get some answers. She is non bearded. Her name is Puff. She lays a white egg.

    Not a Polish, I' m afraid.
    Looks like hatchery quality mottled houdan, I agree.
    Pretty girl though.

    Looks like a Spitzhauben to me, or something similar.

    Mottled Houdans are black with white mottling. Not white will black mottling.

    But doesn't a Spitzhauben have a different type of top hat?

    The variety looks like hatchery quality spangling (not the OEG mottling on BBR, but rather as in silver spangled hamburgs).

    Breed looks to be either spitzhauben (in which spangled is a common variety). As shown on feathersite.com: [​IMG]

    or houdan, in which spangling is not a common variety. Also from feathersite: [​IMG]

    welp, you're all wrong. It is a polish, though lower end on the quality deal, but extremely rare. It is a Black Crested White Polish.
    Here's a couple pics of mine in bantam

    These are our mottled houdan bantams, huge difference

    It may be black crested white but I think it is a mix. I have several from my mixed matings that look just like her.
