Best Answer

Not many birds have more than four toes except chickens of the Dorking, Faverolle, Houden, Sultan, and Silkie Bantams, all of which have five toes. In these breeds the extra toe rises above the base of the hallux and projects upward, this toe never touches the ground. In the Silkie, the extra toes often lie nearly in the same plane as the hallux. Some birds have only three toes, while the ostrich only has two toes.
