I no very little about silkies so I could be completely wrong, but I think that you have a blue silkie cockerel with gold leakage. Leakage is not unheard of, and he looks like many pics I've seen. Calico, as far as cochins go, is just overly white mille fleur. Again, this info could be totally off the mark, it's just what I thought.

Thanks! I know you said you knew little about silkies, but I heard that cockerels with gold leakage are not good for breeding, why is this?
