I haven't heard of anyone doing this project; what color Silkie are you talking about? White, buff, blue, black, splash, Lavender ("self-blue") paint (unlikely)?

The feathers would be some Silkied but mostly smooth feathered. Coloring would probably be a smutty look. Silkie feathering is a recessive trait.

three different birds, one standard lacing, one pencil lacing, one double lacing.

As GLW have standard (hard) feathers and this is F1 they have standard feathers.

They all have black skin and 5 toes on the right foot, one has five one the left, the others four on the left.

As a baby chick:

Yes I never said it couldnt not be done it can be done any two breeds can be bred but if the offspring had silkie feathering it would be a mess there would be no lacing like this it would be a mess that for 100% for sure.
