    A couple weeks back i asked for everyones opinion on my two chicks breeds. Everyone that replied pretty much agreed they were crested polish chicks but ive bee looking at some pictures and wondering could these "polish" chicks really be sultans? They have feathered legs! Not sure if thats a polish trait? Or just sultans? Anyone have any ideas?

    Do they have 5 toes? They look to have the feathered legs of Sultans

    If they have five toes, then they're Sultans or Sultan mixes.

    They're probably Polish or Silkie mixes. Sultans only come in white.
