    I have a chick that I just got that has puffy cheeks, 5th toes, yellowish with a black area on its back, and feathered legs. I checked the catalog that we ordered from and it looks/sounds like one. I didn't see any others that seemed like it. Been trying to identify the ones that might be the most easiest to tell at 4 days old.

    Sultans and silkies can also have 5th toe and leg feathers, but they both are crested types, and silkies have black skin.

    This one has short feathers on the head. The feathers on the cheeks sort of curl upward. It came with our rarest of the rare assortment from McMurray's.

    Here is the list that it might be and I'll try to get a picture of it tomorrow sometime.

    "Sumatras, Dominiques, Golden Laced and Silver Penciled Wyandottes, Silver, Golden, Buff Laced, and White Polish, Golden Campines, Golden Penciled Hamburgs, Silver Penciled Rocks, Partridge, Black, Buff, Blue, & Silver Laced and White Cochins, Araucanas, Dark and Buff Brahmas, Phoenix, Fayoumis, Salmon Faverolles, W. L. Red Cornish, Lakenvelders, Black and White Langshans, Red Caps, Silver Leghorns, Crevecoeurs, Silver Gray Dorkings, Modern BB Red Games, Sultans, Buttercups, & Spanish"

    I'll get some tomorrow. My boyfriend is asleep behind me so I don't want to be running in and out of the room and wake him. I'll try to get some of the other chicks that might be easy to tell also.

    I was looking up silkies and they say they have black bones also interesting.
