    I’ve had a Cochin with 5 toes on one foot and 4 on the other. Does it have 5 toes on both? Also doesn’t have muffs

    If it has five toes on one foot and four on the other, it's probably a mutant. Since it doesn't have muffs, I assume it is a cochin.

    Some people have gotten silkies with 4 toes and various chicks that should have 4 toes but have five. Hatchery birds don’t have their parentage well tracked so the genetics can throw traits not characteristic of the breed. It’s probably a Cochin. There might be a hatchery selling bantam Salmon Faverolle but I can’t think of one
