    the little red thing is called a wattle. Your chick is also growing an incorrect comb - not a walnut comb like silkies should have. Did you get from a hatchery? Or she may be a silkie mix. I can't see the rest of the bird without a much better picture in outdoor light.

    She looks like a black frizzle cochin silkie mix. Very pretty! Looks like a pullet so far.
