You would get faster results posting your question on one of the silkie threads, or simply looking at the photos there. You want birds with mulberry coloured (or darker) comb and wattles. You also want turquoise earlobes, a variety that is compatible with your girls since you plan to breed. You want to emphasize any traits they are lacking, and you don't want to bring in undesirable traits.
