Are silkies the only breed with 5 toes? I would guess some kind of silkie mix....5 toes and it has a crest. But not sure.
Nvm found the info on 5 toed breeds
I have no idea on the cross.

No, Silkies aren't the only chickens with 5 toes. Houdans, Sultans (both crested breeds), and Dorkings all have 5 toes (I believe there may be others too but can't recall off the top of my head). The one picture makes him look very "low slung" (short legged) compared to his body length and his color is similar to the silver-gray Dorking coloration. I would lean towards a Dorking/Polish cross.

Could have Crevecoeur or Saultans crossed in him the both have crests and 5 toes.

Your breeds with 5 toes would be--
-Crevecoeur
-Saultans
-Silkie
-Dorking
-Faverolle
-Houban

Also at the swap where we got him they had 6 of what was his offspring and they all looked like the hen black with the beettle green shine.
