    Got this hen and her three (very tasty) brothers from a friend about a year and a half ago. Just wondering what breeds she might be.

    I'm thinking Silkie X...

    She does look like a silkie cross. How many toes does she have on each foot?

    Maybe a Polish cross. Does she have feathered legs?

    Looks like a Polish cross. No idea on the 2nd breed in the cross.

    Are you in the UK or US or another country?


    She does appear a Silkie or Polish cross, however she's got pale skin, a single comb, and most importantly - Silver Duckwing color.

    Duckwing only appears if you cross duckwing x duckwing, which neither Silkies nor Polish carry.
