recently we bought four chickens and one of the chickens have six toes on one foot
Would you look at that what kind of chicken is he/she?
I don't don't know what type of chicken it is but it looks like this.
Looks like there was a silkie in that pullet's background somewhere.
Six toes are not unheard of and are not unusual in 5-toed breeds. I had a few pop up in my Faverolles this past season.
Interesting, the chicken is a cross? Suppose there's Sultan or Silkie in the chicken?
WHOA!!! When did that happen??? How did you not know?
My silkie roo was a mutt and had 6 toes on each foot. It's definitely a silkie cross.
Does it cause any trouble?
No. Not at all. Just a extra couple toes to clip. We didn't let him breed because we didn't want to carry on the mutant toe.
