    Thank you so so much! I can't believe that it's not a turkey? It was sold as turkey? I thought it looked like a silkie to be honest but it didn't have the fifth toe. Interesting... but thank you! :D

    Of course! Turkey chicks are much bigger and bulkier, they dont have that head bump, instead have a tiny bump on their nose :) Heres a good picture of some turkey chicks (from google) that kinda shows that more square head and larger size (hopefully) :)

    Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    The only one I can ID with confidence would be the Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    Cochin is a good guess on the feather legged. Marans could also be a possibility.

    I have seen some "pet quality" silkies with 4 toes but they still have feathered legs... but I'm thinking possibly Sultan or Polish? But I see Sultan also have feathered legs... so polish I suppose would actually be my best guess after reasoning it out.

    All cute babies! [​IMG]

    I would probably guess Sultan also since I think bearded polish are more rare than a sultan except that Sultans have five toes and this little gal has 4.... I guess it'd be a white bearded polish (or if it has colour on its back it will be different :))

    Sultans have feathered legs and 5 toes. It's a white Polish.
