Hi there,

 

Not sure how old your chicken is, but based on how big and red that comb is (although it could also be a dark purple) that is a cockerel Silkie mixed with something else.

I just can't call -  mixes are too mixed up.  Obviously the sorta-silk  does not have a silkie comb.  At 8 mos. it would have been laying BUT, if not, is it crowing??

White bird looks like a cockerel, but it's too far too confirm 100%. I'd say he's a Silkie cross. The black bird could be a Cochin or Black Copper Marans cross.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
