    Can you post a picture of the entire bird?

    without seeing the bird, I'd say a very poor example of a silkie. But, really want to see the whole bird, toes aren't that exciting. There are other 5 tied breeds that don't have black skin.

    I think you may have a Sultan instead of a silkie. A picture would help.

    Yep, I think it's the kind that's called a Sultan, not a Silkie.

    5 toes, pink skin, beard, crest, non-silkied feathers, v comb.

    Not nearly enough leg feathering for a Sultan. I'm thinking a crossbred of some sort. Full body, standing pictures would help.

    A photo of the bird's whole body would help. I'm thinking mix or hatchery quality Sultan.
