    Hello,

    I see one cockerel (first photo, bird on left, facing camera and 3rd photo (I'm assuming it's the same bird?) and two that I am not sure of. Non-bearded silkies do have wattles--even bearded silkies often have wattles, but they are usually fairly small and hidden by the beard. BTW, that isn't a grey--closer to columbian/light.
