    I got this 16 week old from a neighbor. Thinking pullet but not sure. Any ideas what breeds it may have in it?

    I believe you are right, pullet, looks like extra toes, so probably a faverolle cross, and maybe EE, that's my guess.

    white skin, five toes, lightly feathered legs, beard--all point to Faverolles ancestry.

    Not sure what it's crossed with. something colombian colored would be my guess, but that doesn't narrow it down much as that color is common to several breeds.

    Can you get a better picture of its feet. I'm not seeing the fifth toe.

    Just looked at her again. No fith toe. There is light feathering on her feet that look like toes in the pic.

    It was that 4th toe that was an optical illusion. I still stick with my original guess though.

    Pretty good chance she's an Easter Egger. Or an Olive Egger, mixed with a Marans would explain the light leg feathering and the white skin.
