    There are several breeds that have 5 toes (Silkies and Sultans, to name a couple). So it could be either one. [​IMG]

    I'm new to this...but, the only breed I know of with 5 toes is a Silkie.
    There may be others, though?

    Do you have a photo of the chick?

    Do you have any pics? There are a few breeds that naturally havefive toes, ie: silkies, faverolles, crevoceurs, sultans.....actually the last two breeds I'm not positive on, [​IMG] but the bird could be a cross or purebred from one of these or another 5 toed breed. Does it have black skin? What type of feathering and color?
     
  5. Houdans & Faverolles do too! [​IMG] And Dorkings...nope, Creves don't have 5. [​IMG]

    OK i think i figured out how to post a pic. If so this is her
     
  10. Quote:Okay, now I'm stumped...it's not a Faverolle or a Sultan (wrong leg color for both, plus no beard or crest?) I'd guess she's a mix??? Does she just have ONE extra toe on one foot?
