    I was checking over my half grown chickens, and noticed one of the white black crested Polish has extra toes! :eek:

    How neat! Can't believe I didn't notice before.

    Are you sure it is not a Houdan??? I have one that I am trying to figure out.... but maybe they just got some mixed blood in them somewhere [​IMG]

    Yeah! My polish hen has those too! I got her as an adult and just noticed it about a week ago... and here my silkie chicks are thinking they were so special! [​IMG]

    They came from a feed store, and as chicks, matched the black, white crested polish (and amusingly enough, were labeled as such...along with a ton of golden polish!) so I'm calling them that, but there's honestly no telling.

    I call him TMT...TooManyToes!
