    One of my chicks has 6 toes on one foot! Do you think it hurts her/him?[​IMG]

    Then it is most likely a silkie and they have extra toes.

    Can you post a picture? Even with the extra toe, I believe silkies still only have five. I would be interested in seeing a silkie with extra toes [​IMG]

    It happens and it doesn't hurt the chick. I once had a polydactyl cat with 7 toes on each back foot and 6 on each front! [​IMG]
