    no no no! Its totally cool. Just thought your chick had three toes, was thinking birth defect or evolution lol. Four toes and a small crest is most likely a polish cross or second generation silkie cross.

    My picture on this thread is a silkie/Americana cross. This was taken today. Notice feathers on the feet. She has five toes.

    Kinda looks like mine. I got 10 Jersey giants & 10 black astralorps.. and one bonus that I can't figure out! I can't tell the Giants from the astralorps yet though.
