    How old are they? Are they all the same age? Your fourth chick either is a mix, or a poor quality silkie. I can't tell by the picture if the feathering is correct but, I can see it has a straight PINK comb. Silkies should have dark walnut combs, black feet, black skin, 5 toes etc.

    It looks like it has regular feathers, ergo not a Silkie. probably a first generation mix. Mixed with what...who knows? You could ask the seller.

    That one has some fuzz. Her feet are black but no blue ear or dark beak. I'm so curious. It reminds me of an eagle but it has a comb. Lol. The other three are definitely silkies they have all the signs. Maybe just a fluke, like the ugly duckling...! I'll continue to post pictures as she/he grows!
