    This chick is about a week old and we got her in an assortment of bantam chicks from Ideal Poultry. I have been all over their website trying to figure out what she might be but I haven't had any success. Do you have any idea what breed and variety she might be? She is feather-legged and has an extra fifth toe on each foot.

    I think they might actually be gray silkies, because partridges are a little redder. They are so cute!

    Oh, sorry! The little drawing of the gray Silkie chicks on Ideals website shows them with stripes, so I got mixed up. I don't have either color so I was just going off the picture. Sorry if I confused anybody!:/
