    Like any mom or grandma, you have count toes on new babies. So, my a Cochin babies are odd. I have 3 babies. All have fuzzy legs. 1 has 5 toes. Never really looked at the adult chickens, but I read that Cochins do NOT have 5 toes. *Scrathing head*

    Sounds like a possible silkie mix, but we need good individual pics, not just the feet but profile pics of the birds too, close head shots to see the comb type is good too.

    I forgot. This is the odd hen. She doesn't look anything like the other hens.

    From what I can see, they're all mixed breeds. Cochins have straight combs, and your birds have rose combs and pea or mixed combs. Could easily have some silkie in the gene pool a ways back, to account for some extra toes. Other five toed breeds are Faverolles, Dorkings and Sultans.
