    My first Cochin/Frizzle chick has hatched out (did it early at 19 days, been tearing up the hatching board asking questions about it) any ways just got a good look at it, is cute as a button, but has 2 and a half toes on each foot. The outside toe, where the feathers are is only half there. Is that nornal?? Just curious, thanks

    not normal, but it happens. can be from inbreeding or problems during incubation. good luck with your your chick
