    I have 9 bannies that picked up the other day. Well that's what the lady called them. Here are some pics of them. 2 of them have feathers on their legs and feet and looks like they have an extra toe? Is this normal? I am new to these and they were such a good deal at $1 a piece. Any information someone may have on these beauties is greatly appreciated.

    Silkies have five toes, they may have silkie in them.

    She looks like a crossbreed bantam. Bantam just means a miniature chicken and is not the breed. As she said, Silkies have black skin and five toes. Faverolles have five toes, etc.

    I think the daddy was a bantam cochin. He sure was a beauty and short and fluffy. His tail was full and about as high as his head. I really think you guys are all right and they are a mix between the silkie and bantam cochins! Thanks for all your replies.
