    A couple of weeks ago, I received my shipment from murray mcmurray hatchery and my "golden polish" don't have a fifth toe. Is this just poor breeding habits? Can they be carriers? Meaning if I breed them back together is there a chance I can get back to the standard?

    Polish as a breed should not have a fifth toe so it's not a poor breeding habit.

    Other crested breeds do have 5 toes though, Sultans, Slikies, Houdans for example.

    Oh. I could have sworn I read that they had fifth toe. Perhaps it was sultans. I was looking at both for a breeding project and settled on polish. Sorry.
