    Ok so I now have 2 what are supposed to be silkie Roos. They are beautiful have six toes 100% silkie feathers all white non bearded tho and feathered legs. Problem is neither have a walnut comb and one has a rose comb. They DO also have the blue earings What in the world? What is wrong with these boys is this normal? Thanks

    Quote:I just got them today and my battery is dead it is charging right now I will have to wait till the morning. All I can say is for the most part they look 100% silkie but they have both have combs that look normal like say a Barred Rocks. But the one has the blue and the others is red.. I am confrazzled!!

    They are most likely Silkies with faults. Straight combs show up in Silkies every now and then. They are then referred to as "pet quality" instead of show/breeder quality.

    They're very cute, pet quality - probably hatchery stock silkies. Nothing wrong with them for pets. The small crest and narrow body feathering are also a clue. But they will absolutely be your best friends if you let them.

    I love mine.
