    No, It looks like a purebred silkie.. he just has a single comb. Even from a Walnut to Walnut comb mating, you can still get singles that pop up every once in a while, especially if the parents are recessive for single comb. He is pure, just not show quality.

    looking at the comb and skin colour, I'll say he'll be 2nd or 3rd cross.

    thanks for all of your answers.. I thought for a long time and debated with my dad, that he could be a silkie or a silkie cross...
