    Well there are breeds called rosecombs. As for silver pencilled that is just a color but it looks like your chick is silver pencilled, now to figure out the breed. Does it have feathered feet? What kind of comb does it have? I am going to guess it is either a dark brahma (if it has feathered feet and pea comb) or a silver pencilled rock(clean legs and single comb) or a silver pencilled wyandotte (clean legs and rose comb)

    Rosecombs dont come in silver pencilled. If it has a rose comb it is probably a silver pencilled wyandotte.
