    Last night I picked up this little one. The usual breeder was away and the lady covering her didn't know exactly what she is. She has four toes. I know the other is a silkie with its five feet, but not sure this one. I just felt a connection with her and so chose her. Any ideas? She is one week old. [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, not enough can be seen to venture a guess. Are the legs clean or feathered? What color are the legs, skin, beak? (shading in the photo and bird's position make seeing this difficult) What comb type does the chick show it will have - even at this stage you can generally see whether it will be narrow/single or wider such as pea/rose.

    Okay finally back with the info. She has feathered feet, a beak that is a combo of blackish/grey, and her legs are yellowy brown with scaly looking grey down them. Her comb is narrow and yellow/pinkish.
