    What kind of comb does it have? It looks like it might be developing some kind of crest.

    I just looked up Old english on the "Breeds" section and they dont have 5 toes or feathered legs.
    Just as curious as you are now [​IMG]

    No, Old English don't have feathered legs or extra toes.

    It's a mutt. Often hatcheries will offer "frizzles" - Which, 25% of the time, could be normally feathered, and about 50% of the time, sometimes more, will have five toes. I have a few myself.
