    My buddy's husband brought these home from the flea market, couldn't remember what breed the guy said, just that they were "fancies." I work with one breed exclusively, and this isn't it, so I thought maybe someone here could identify them:

    Does the white one have five toes if not could be a sultan. I am not sure about the other one does it have feather feet.

    Quote:I have a silkie mix that doesn't have 5 toes, so 4 toes wouldn't rool out silkie blood.

    Thanks - I suspected they were mixes, but, as I'm not familiar with any of the breeds likely involved, didn't feel qualified to say for sure. I haven't seen them myself, just these pictures, but I'll ask her if she can get some pics that show their feet.

    Well, no new pics, but she said both have 4 toes, the darker one has feathers on it's feet, the white one does not. The darker one was sold as China Game Fowl, which, in my admittedly amateur opinion, it bears little resemblance too...

    I have a half-silky half RIR hen - she's a great layer and a great mother and looks exactly like your white pullet, except mine is red.
