You are right some of the employees know nothing about chickens/breeds
sounds like you got yourself some silkies. There are a couple breeds I think that have 5 toes but, silkies have the black skin. What colors did you get? The bad thing about silkies is you really can't tell what sex they are till about 4-5 mos. or when it crows or lays an egg.

Welcome to BYC!

Congrats on the new chicks! Yes, there are other breeds that have 5 toes. If you are concerned as to their breeds, you can post pics in our What Breed section here on BYC for help with ID....
