    [​IMG] Hello, I got my chicks about a week ago and i have just noticed that Almost al of them have 5 toes, i know that is normal for silkies, but one havs six fingernails on each foot and one of them has only four toes.
    They are all silkies, and i was just wondering why that happend, or how.
    Thanks:D

    silkies don't always have 5 toes, do they? Could it be cross-breeding produced the 4-toer?
