    ive got 2 silkies. I know they have an extra toe but should my male have 2 extra toes? the female has 3 in front and 2 small ones in the rear. the male has all 6 facing forward. shes naked legged he is not if that makes a difference.
    thanks for any and all info

    it's not normal, but it's not rare for silkies to have 6 toes.
