    I've got a mystery on my hands. I got a chick from Buchiets which gets their chicks from Ideal and I got it out of the assorted crested bin. This chick looks just like a silkie except it's has pink skin and legs could this little one be a sultan and Ideal has Sultans

    Ok sounds good. Someone might be able to guess based on the description it's just so much easier with a pic kwim? Good luck!

    What color is the chick? I'm assuming it has 5 toes, feathered legs, crest, and beard/muffs...

    If it looks like the chick on the left in my avatar, and has 5 toes, definite Sultan! That's what that chick is. :) (The other is a Pyncheon.)
