    We bought a new baby over the weekend, she's actually an Araucana but with some silkie through her and is the palest lavender blue colour, with silkie type fluff, bare legs, and is starting to grow some ear muffs.

    and her two end toes are webbed! she is clearly an odd one but she's very cute and pretty.

    anyone else come across this similar cross breed? will post a pic or two when i can.

    Silkies have five toes, the back two usually being fused and the top one being longer than the bottom. This isn't anything unusual considering your bird is a Silkie mix.
