    uumm... what did you ORDER???? where did the eggs come from???
    i think 5 toes = silkie or silkie mix
    seabrights ARE clean legged.. so if it have feathers down its legs it is not a seabright,, sorry

    that stinks i really wanted seabright so it is prob a silkie cross as it has 5 toes and feathered legs but hey a silkie is just fine for me lol, this came from a guy that had maybe 50 chickens so no reall way of nowing but when i saw 5 toes and feathers on foot i was also suspecting silkie but hey i got a silkie

    I love silkie x-s.. sometimes they have colours you can breed back to a pure silkie.
