I have about 50 white silkies and they all look about the same, black skin. Except one has pink skin, any ideas why? She has the five toes and the blue on her face.

All the skin is pink, and he also has white legs & feet. He does have the 5 toes. As far as the parents, I bought the eggs on Ebay and hatched them in my incubator. All the rest of the eggs I hatched from the same seller were normal. Here are some pics of him.

Skin colour is regulated by W and Fm genes. Silkies should be W+/W+ Fm/Fm

Leg and feet colour is also regulated by the Id gene; silkies should be id+/id+. Many breeds have white or yellow skin and dark legs/feet.
