    I got it from Murray McMurray so it defiantly should be a pure breed. However it is not one I ordered so it is most likely my free rare chick they gave me.

    It is defiantly a mystery. I would say it is a white crested polish (because of the color and crown) mixed with a silkie or other feather footed breed (because it has 5 toes and furry feet) . I wouldn't think Murray Hatchery would have mixed breeds though so I am at a loss.

    it does have the fifth toe but wouldn't a sultan be completely white?

    It is a Polish /Sultan cross, Sultans only come in one color in the U.S. and that is White.
    McMurray is just like any other hatchery they have and sell cross bred chickens.
