    Bought some bantam chicks at tractor supply and one of them stands out with 4 toes. Here are a few pics, anyone recognize this type?

    What an interesting little chick! Usually, extra toes and black skin would indicate silkie. Silkies would have feathered feet though. Very cute chick :)

    It looks like a hatchery quality Silkie. They commonly lack feathers on their legs and have improper combs (your chicks single comb wouldn't fit the Silkie standard). Sometimes you even see them without silkied feathers.
