    We had a chick that was hatched by a frizzle hen. He is a silkie or Frizzle and he looks perfectly normal until you turn him over and it has four legs all are fully developed and feathers on all of them. Below are pics of it.

    Oh that is WILD! [​IMG]

    I hope he is OK...well, relatively speaking. I hope that's his only deformity. Do all 4 legs "work"? Do they all move independently of each other?
