at the time I had 3 red sex links but got rid of them they terrorize my girls it was awful.

It's a shame one was absolutely beautiful he had reddish brown feathers and at 5 months he was like 9 pounds. He was so heavy and big.

With those choices, the silkie is the father. And according to what I read here years ago, a silkie male over a white skinned female gives sex linked chicks by shank color. White it male, black is female. Going by that you have a little cockerel.

Nope, cause the EE have dark legs. What I read was a black skinned rooster (silkie or ayam cemani, something like that) over a white skinned hen. I've never done it myself, but I trusted the person who posted it.

agree with donrae,  your chick has feathered legs-  I would guess the partridge silkie is the papa.

Just for your information, your red cockerels are/were not sex links which would be predominantly white with red shoulders. Those 3 in your last photo are probably production reds. 

 

As has been previously stated, the father of your chick has to be the silkie if he is the only other option.
