    Well, several breeds have 5 toes. Dorkings are smooth shanked and come in a spangled color I think. Faverolles and Sultans have feathered feet and Houdans have a top hat. Silkies also have 5 toes and have black skin and characteristic feathers. There may be other breeds I can't think of off hand.

    From the picture I am going to guess a Dorking or Dorking cross, but if there are feathers on the feet or a top hat I would switch my vote. The feet are not black so I doubt Silkie influence.

    Yes, pictures of the head including comb and full side body shot would be most helpful.

    That is an East Texas Piney Woods chicken. Around here, we call 10 toes a calculator. [​IMG]
