    I hatched this little one out from an assortment of purchased eggs and I'm trying to figure out what breed it could be.

    5 toes, feathered feet, pink skin, poof on head and beard. Its comb looks like it has 2 think lines starting on each side of beak.

    Silkies, Sultans, Houdans, Dorking, and Faverolle all have 5 toes.

    Thank you and Goodluck,

    From the looks of the other birds, I'm thinking they're all silkie mixes.

    ChickenGrass--I remember reading something saying Sultans have "all the bells and whistles"--- crests, beards, funky combs, feathered legs, five toes. Pretty much all the add-ons a chicken can have, I think.
