    Kind of looks like a Polish mix with that nose?

    Didn't the seller tell you what she was sending you? Or was it a "barnyard mix"?

    I have 8 SF chicks in my brooder down stairs...

    Could you post a better picture of it's wing feathers? It looks similar to how mine are feathering out but mine all have 5 toes and very puffy cheeks.

    It could be possible that it's a poorly bred SF or a mix.

    He says in the first post that the chick only has 4 toes.
    Its probably a mix, very cute.

    faverolles should have five toes, not four. Sometimes a "throw back" would occur but if they are purebred for at least five generations, they should have fifth toes going on.
