Polydactyly (extra toes) can vary in expression. In extreme expression there can be almost an entire extra foot atop the main foot :O I had one of them and gave it to a pet home where she is loved and adored and not passing on the gene combination.
More than 5 toes on Silkies is quite common. We have bred them specifically for the Polydactyl gene to the point that we end up with over-expression of the desired trait.
