    This is princess she is 5 weeks old now. I posted when she was younger and no one seems to know what she might be. She is white with black marking and almost pink looking legs In this pic her comb looks really pink but its really beige must have been the lighting

    When the little one gets a bit older, check out the feet some more. I found a few of mine that had their extra toe grow with their back toe. I could see it was mildly deformed with an extra toenail, that's how I knew it was there.

    Thats where hers is and has toenail too. Is it because she is a mix? will it bother her in any way. She doesnt seem to be having any problems now she seems really healthy. And I keep saying she cause I am hoping. [​IMG]

    It could be, I'm not completely sure. All of mine are mixes and of the four that have five toes, two had one less toe on the one foot. My run around just as happy as everyone else and have never shown signs of discomfort.

    The white pullet looks like a delaware. If her legs yellow up you'll know for sure. The mix has that extra toe because somewhere in it's lineage is a silkie or faverolle or some other 5-toed breed. Nothing to worry about. [​IMG]
