    Can anyone tell me what breed cockeral this is, I know it's a mixed breed but it has a name to the breed, and its a newish breed, it has alot Of feather, 5 toes on each leg as well as spurs, he also has feather goings down his leg, and alot of it! [​IMG]
    We breed him with a normal laying chicken and these are his offspring
    [​IMG] 9 week old, 4 toes but feather on legs similar colouring, I had a
    Yellow chick hatch that grew white adult feathers, no feather on legs but 5 toes, I also hatched some more out and surprisingly I had a black and yellow chick, 5 toes without feather on legs, 2 yellow chicks but 1 had 5 toes on one leg and 4 on other, both with feather on leg! It bought that was quite interesting tbh! These are the yellow chicks that have started getting there feathers, 3 week old [​IMG]
    [​IMG][/IMG] on the first picture, if you zoom in you probably can see the five toes!

    The only new breed I can think of with 5 toes is the silkichin, but it was made in the USA so I don't know if you have it yet. I don't know what new breeds are in the UK. The silkichins I have seen have had small crests and yours don't. He is pretty though.
