    Polish don't have feathered legs. It looks like your chick has a "fro". Polish chicks have a very fluffy head almost like a cotton ball was stuck on. Hard to tell from your picture if it has the crest or not, the rest of the chick looks polish to me.

    My Polish have 4 toes, I'm guessing you have a houdan.

    it's a mottled houdan! I have three of them and they looked exactly like that. 5 freakish toes and all!! congrats
    here is mine for comparison:

    about 4 weeks old

    they are 6 weeks old now, and their crests are really something to look at. they definitely stand out from all the others lol
