Chicks with walnuts and combs from the same 'family'?

I don't know if that's normal or not, or why that happens, but out of our four silkies three of them are developing combs (our buff's is already turning black while our patridge's are remaining black?) and one is developing a black walnut instead... we got them from the same breeder, but not necessary the same 'family', is this normal? Why would that happen?

Single combs pop up in silkies occasionally. If they are just pets - no big deal, but if you are breeding to show, I wouldn't breed the single combed birds.
