    Congradulations! These chicks look healthy, and you seemed to have a good hatch! [​IMG]

    I can't say I'm the best with telling baby chickens, adults are much easier. I can help you with the one yellow one though. The extra toe is something that is common in certain types of chickens. I have quite a few bantams that have five toes. Dorking, Faverolle, Houden, Sultan, and Silkie Bantams, all have five toes. For you, that chick probably isn't a Silkie or Houden. They might be Faverolle or Dorking, as they don't have the normal tuff of head feathers like my Sultan chicks do.

    Yes Dorking mix is what someone else said about the 5 toed chick but it is only on one foot kinda funny. The one brownish chick has fuzzy leggs and one of the black one also has fuzzy legs so i am starting to thing they are a little mixed up. Thats just fine there pretty cute anyway and they will lay eggs if i have any hens.
