    This is my chicken Sunny! I was told she was a silkie because she has an extra toe and blue feet, but she is around 21 Weeks and doesn't have the puffy look I have seen on other silkies.

    Yep, I'd say sultan - but I wouldn't think roo... Face is pale for 21 weeks old. Other than that, you'd need to post pics of her standing on her own.

    i was thinking roo cause of the hair and the redish around the beak. sultans r a breed that has 5 toes, it looks pure to me not mixed. mine all looked like that when i used to raise them. here is a link to pics that may help ya.
