    They look pure, yes. Maybe some mixed colors and not show quality, but yeah they are silkies.

    I agree with Kanchii. Looks like pures, but not show quality and probably not a single variety.

    Autosomal red. Definitely not a recognised colour--one of the variations often called calico.

    Yes, pure silkie, the calico seems to have pretty descent type, crest and foot feathering; much better than the white.
