    I have 6 chicks that are around a week old... I was told. One is much bigger and has an extra toe (thing...) above the regular 4th nub on the back like the rest of the chicks have. I was told that they were Ameraucanas, but they were in the same box as some banties. So what is it?

    If they were sold as bantams, theres a possibility that they could be silkies.

    Oh where are my manners.. [​IMG]
    And yes, Silkies are quite fun but you'll just have to wait and see how they feather out. if you post pics on the Gender/Breed section of the forum, folks more knowledgable than I would be glad to help you out in identifying your new chicks.
