    She looks like a Polish. Cute bird!

    But dont Polish's have legs without feathers? I was thinking Polish but the leg thing put me off that [​IMG]
    She is the tamest chicken I have ever met, but she's not so nice to the other chickens [​IMG]

    Some sort of Polish cross? Does she have feathered feet? Maybe a Polish X Cochin?

    I think Polish/Cochin is possible! She does look rather fluffy and has feathered legs, so that's definitely a possibility. Regardless, she's a very cute bird! Looks like a nice chicken for hugging. [​IMG]

    She seems to plump to be one of the ornamental crested breeds to me (Sultan, Pure Polish, etc.) The feathered feet with the wide body screams Cochin X, IMHO...

    Some type of top hat chicken. Whether it is polish, sultan, or whatever. I don't have any experience with any top hat breed. Hope you find out.

    I agree that most sultans are lean not so chunky. Jenny (in my avatar) is a sultan.

    I also noticed Sultans have pinker beaks and feet, her's is more yellow.
