    Most of the silkie crosses I have seen have had the black skin and five toes.. Do all silkie crosses have that? I'm trying to figure out if my buff orpington bantam babies are polish or silkie crosses.

    Look for extra toes and dark skin on silkie crosses; look for "cavernous" nostrils an a very vaulted skull on polish crosses (silkie crosses may or may not have a vaulted skull). Also look at comb type
