    I got 2 chicks from the local feed store who said they were both polish. The first one is a grayish color, but not sure which color polish it is. The second one is all white, has an extra back toe (like silkies?), has the polish pouf on the head, and some feathers on it's feet. They said it was a polish/silkie bantam mix (it is pretty small). Here they are:

    Oh, I forgot to add if the white one is a polish/silkie mix, does anyone have a picture of how it will probably turn out? Thanks!

    The white one could be a Sultan. The gray could be either a silver or a blue polish.

    Thanks akcountrygrrl! I went on the My Pet Chicken site (they show what the chicks look like) and I think you're right on the Sultan. The chicks they show look exactly like mine! I also looked up Silver Polish. They have a Silver Laced Polish and that seems to be pretty close. Thanks again!

    Sorry. I meant Silver laced... [​IMG] That's what I get for trying to think and type after spending all day at working typing letters...

    Put them to work cleaning brooders and feeding/watering chicks... [​IMG] I have a 9 year old and she never complains about being bored because I'll always find something for her to do if she does. Hehehe

    Quote:That's the first thing that came to mind for me was it was a sultan until you said it was a crossbred. Are you sure it's a cross because I'm seeing yellow feet and not even smutty from the black skinned silkie? If it is, it should be smooth feathered and still have a decent sized top knot on it. But I'm guessing it's a sultan.
