    The picture makes it difficult to tell. There are a couple of breeds with 5 toes. The silkie and the Dorkings are two off the top of my head. Dorkings are fairly rare. I am sure some others will kick in with other 5 toed breeds.

    It's hard to tell by the picture, but if the chicken has five toes (assuming its not a defect) then its a Dorking.

    She is a mixed breed. The five toed breeds are Faverolles, Dorkings, silkies, Houdans and Sultans, and she isn't any of those.

    I agree, she could be a mixed breed.

    It's just impossible to tell because of the picture [​IMG]

    I think you are correct because most of my flock is mixed. From another post I made about a Roo that was hatched at the sme time someone said faverolle mix.

    Probably a Dorking mixed breed, but a better pic in good lighting would help us confirm her identity.
