    What type of comb did she have? Did she have a beard or a crest? Did she have feathered feet?

    She was a cross breed. Maybe bantam Cochin crossed with Easter egger. Difficult to say for sure, though.

    I found these pics sorry I meant single comb but now that I see these old pics I’m thinking she had a pea comb I also noticed her head is a little legbar like and she doesn’t have cheeks sorry for the bad picture quality FFBF3690-7DD7-4555-BBBA-09CEEBFD97D7.jpeg 611965D6-8CFF-4CAB-B861-BF9F838713B5.jpeg 945331AE-C2CE-4434-B83A-7285AD979D88.jpeg

    Now that I see her head I see she has a small crest, what is known as a tassel. Her skin is blueish and the comb looks like either a raspberry or pea comb. So she has to be a Silkie cross. Maybe Silkie x Easter egger or Silkie x Cochin. The Silkie parent was probably buff or partridge in color, not the usual black or white.
