    I need to know what type of breed are my silkie, also I would like to know why one is small and the other one is big. I bought them both seperatley from different people, so I want to know if I have silkie or a mix.

    Both of them appear to be Partridge Silkies.

    Both are Partridge Silkies.

    They are different sizes become they came from different parents. Not all birds within a breed will look exactly alike.

    They look different because they are different birds. Just like with people and other animals, there are many variations in size, shape, etc. among individuals. Both of your birds are definitely the same breed/variety (Partridge Silkie), but since they came from different people, they won't look exactly the same.
