    I am still trying to figure out what this chicken is....VERY tame, sits and likes to be petted like a cat!

    I'm curious to find out too. I'm don't know the first one, and the second one does not look like any of the 5 toed breeds. (Dorking, Houdan, silkie, Faverolle, or sultan)

    Quote:that was my thoughts also, it's been killing me, it was sold to me as an EE, the woman is a bit old, and just grabbed it...so...I hope someone can help, maybe as it gets older.

    With those yellow legs would not be a pure sussex....

    Minus the legs, I'd guess Sussex for the first one, especially given the temperament. Mine were the calmest and friendliest chicks I've had (not true of the adults, but it took my friendliest a LONG time to come around, and she's still kind of a spaz)

    There are six 5 toe breeds.
    Crevecoeur, Dorking, Faverolle, Houdan, Silkie, Sultan

    My guess would be that there some type of Dorking cross.

    Yeah dorking makes sense... But that does not look like an EE cross (although it would explain some of the coloring)...

    I totally didn't realize my silkies had 5 toes until reading this... Had to go check [​IMG]

    Bird 1 looks like a Welsummer to me. IDK about bird 2 but it will be interesting to see how it feathers out.
