    I think this is a sultan chick - I saved it from a local store that had probably 200 in a horse watering tank. It was the smallest one in there and was being trampled. It has 5 toes on one foot and 6 on the other. It's skin is also black. I know the toe thing points to a sultan, but the black skin would be a silky, right? It's also growing really, really slow.
    Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

    Sultans dont have black skin, so I would have to say it is a Silkie![​IMG]

    Thanks for your help - I really wanted a silkie - now if it can only be a pullet. Thanks again!
