What breeds have extra toes?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I got an assortment of bantam chicks from TSC 2 days ago, and one has 5 toes. At first i was thinking it was a silkie but then remembered silkies also have black skin...  this chick has pink skin and yellow fuzz, with white feathers where you can see them so far.  oh and feathered feet too... 

they were sold as assorted pure breed chicks, so that is what i'm going by for now.

Welcome to the Zoo!  Horses (both LF and Bantam LOL), Standard Poodle, cats, pet birds & chickens.

Dorkings, SFH, bantam Cochins, EE's & others.

And of course, my wonderful Hubby, who puts up with me and keeps me in check when I start to get crazy.

Sultan, Silkies & Faverolles have feathered feet & five toes. Dorkings & Houdans don't have feathered feet.

Crevecoeur, Dorking, and Houdan are clean legged
Faverolle, Silkie, and Sultan are feather legged

Umm, no, Cochins do not. If your Cochin has 5 toes it is a mutt. wink
