    Assumption based on the red comb and wattles and not top fluff

    He looks like a pure silkie to me, but the red wattles and small crest aren't desirable traits.

    Quote:He IS a pure Silkie. He's just not good quality. Silkies CAN have red combs, but SQ birds don't as it is not part of the Standard.

    He is a Silkie... a PURE Silkie...
