    I hadn't noticed before and I'll and get a pic, but Spike my Polish roo has 5 toes. BUT they don't look alike. On one foot the toe in back as a twin, not quite like a Silkie but close, the other foot the back toe sticks out back like normal but it has an odd little toe more similar to a Silkie. I would imagine that Spike is a cross-breed then, he also has a little beard now. My chicken-hating mother noticed all this and pointed it today, I'd love to know how she saw all this and I didn't!
