    I got an assortment of bantam chicks from TSC 2 days ago, and one has 5 toes. At first i was thinking it was a silkie but then remembered silkies also have black skin... this chick has pink skin and yellow fuzz, with white feathers where you can see them so far. oh and feathered feet too...

    they were sold as assorted pure breed chicks, so that is what i'm going by for now.

    Quote:Sultan, Silkies & Faverolles have feathered feet & five toes. Dorkings & Houdans don't have feathered feet.

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

    Crevecoeur, Dorking, and Houdan are clean legged
    Faverolle, Silkie, and Sultan are feather legged
