    Hi I just bought a new Rooster

    It was supposed to be a Mottle coloured polish
    It has a mottle colour on it chest, has a beard, has a big fluffy head like a Polish but it has Five toes [​IMG] !!

    Any one have any idea of what this could be ? Just wondering if the houdan breed had five toes ?

    Or could it be Cross Bred ?

    Thanks

    Houdans, Sultans and Silkies have 5 toes.
    A cross is always a possibility.
