    About a month ago I bought some fertile eggs from a farmer to try out in my new incubator. I got one out of all of them which was about 20. I have no idea what it is though. It is white with 5 toes and a few feathers on its feet. It also has a little tuff on its' head. Does anyone have any ideas on what it is? --Thanks--

    Sounds like a Sultan. My DS wants one of those!

    Could be a sultan or a silkie. What color is the skin? Silkies have black skin....

    This was my Sultan when she was about a week old. Does she look like this?

    Sorry the pic is kinda blurry...

    Quote:We just sold 3 of our babies. We kept 1. Have a few eggs under a broody, but won't know what they are till they hatch.

    It has white skin. You have a flying squirrel? That would be neat. I used to have button quail but we had a problem with mink for a while. I miss my quails.

    I always wanted call ducks. Does anyone have call ducks that would want to sell them for a reasonable price?
