    I have this mixed breed hen. I think from the pictures I`ve seen the father is a cochin x silkie.

    What do you think it is. It is the one on the right.
    SpeckleHen, can you post a pic of your cochin/silkie x barred rock.

    Her crest looks similar to Tux's.

    Oh, yeah, I have three sisters and as rooster-red said, Tux is one of them. Their dad was a Cochin/Silkie cross and all had Barred Rock mothers. Here are some pics of Kate, Tux and Olivia. I also had two pullets, now owned by rooster-red, named Iris and Hazel, who are EE/Barred Rock crosses. Their coloring is similar to your hen's. Iris is the last picture.

    With the color of thoes feet, I want to say the crest came from maybe a polish of some sort. Black skin and stuff is usually pretty dominant.
