    What a beautiful rooster. I don't know what breed. I used to know the name for his coloration but, darn my brain cells seems to be asleep at the moment. Well I'm no help at all. You can post his photo at "what breed or gender is this," somebody should know.

    [​IMG] Glad you joined us. He is gorgeous, but don't know the breed. Do post under breed/gender and likely you'll get an answer.

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! It is quite common, some breeds like Silkies have five toes.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. He looks like a Crele Penedesenca, but with the five toes he is likely a mixed breed. He's a beautiful bird though. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
