    It does look very similar to a Gray silkie chick. Is there any red\\brown in the wing feathers ? I can't tell from the pics.

    It might be a grey, but looks more like a blue partridge, or even blue grey.

    Then it is Silver Penciled.

    Grey when describing most fowl is similar to Duck-wing (Grays can come in a variety of colors like regular grey, silver grey, frost grey, blue grey, chocolate grey, pumpkin grey and black grey)
