    I got my 4 chicks about 2 weeks ago and I just realized that one of the mixed breeds has 12 toes total (6 on each foot) is this normal?

    A silkie should only have 10 toes. But can undesirably have a few extra.

    One of my silkies has 6 toes on each foot! They actually look like one "split" toe that makes it look like two! Very freaky, but he/she is still adorable. Plus the feet feathers cover the extra digit![​IMG]
