    [​IMG]Looks to me like a young Welsummer. With the flash the neck feathers appear white, are they gold/yellow? If so, she is a Welsummer.

    We need a better pic, but she looks like a mixed breed to me. Does she have a small crest?

    Hello! Yes she does have a small crest. Her tail is small and narrow and upright. The sign said "real good mom" lol, so I assume she is full grown.

    Looks like a silkie mix. She should be a good momma with those genes.
