I'm sure there are a million of these threads posted, but I'm in the middle of an 8 page paper for school and had to stop distracting myself with BYC! Quick question about my new babies though. I picked up 2 3 day old silkie babies yesterday and one of them has a little poo on its rear. Doesn't affect its ability to poo as I saw it poo on my BF this morning. Do I clean it off or let it do its thing??? Also, The first chick I grabbed at the farm had 5 toes so I figured they all did, but upon bringing home the two that I managed to catch I realized that mine have only 4 toes... They have black skin and there were black silkies at the farm, but there was also a black silkie/turken (showgirl??) cross hen. I didn't see her feet so I dont' know how many toes she had, but is it possible that I have 4 toed silkies or are they crossed with something else?
