    Almost all of the more popular and common breeds of chicken have reddish coloured combs.
    I think Silkies have dark coloured combs though, along with a few other breeds...
  3. Your chick is definately a silkie cross, which explains the dark gray/dark colored comb. are the legs dark colored like the comb is?

    That face screams silkie mix to me, I have quite a few that are different colors but very similar in 'look' silkie/bantam mixes.
