    I have two pairs of bearded silkies, and one of the roosters have a red face instead of a blue face,
    does anyone know what that means? Thanks!!

    Probably the one with the red face has some other breed in his past. Breed the one with the blue face.

    (Skin is officially called "black")

    the standard calls for mulberry to black skin. Sometimes a red skinned one crops up It is a disqualification in showing.
    this guy has a mulberry skin tone
