    I got 17 White Silkie Bantam chicks Wendsday! I'm raising three for a freind. They are soooo cute! Why does one have six toes?

    Aw they are cute. I don't know why the Silkie breed has six toes - they are just a little different. But that is not as odd as their bluish black bone I heard that they have - like the color of their skin.
