    I got some mixed eggs to add to my RIR eggs in the bator, and one chick is large, black, 5 toes, and light hair/leathers down the sides of his legs. Sound like anything you know of?

    According to Henderson chicken chart, these three breeds have both five toes and are feather footed, Sultan, Silkie, and Faverolles.

    I also think sultans have the 5th toe. And the dorkings and hudons too if I remember right.

    Dorkings have 5 toes but they don't have feathered legs.
