    Buff silkie yes, Wyandotte no. That's a barred rock.

    Wyandotte have rose combs and the silver laced have silver body color with the edge of each feather laced in black. The bird above has barring, not lacing and a single comb.

    That's a silver laced Wyandotte with the wrong comb or a silver laced orpington. Need to see legs to tell the difference.

    Out to pasture
    doesn't look like a barred rock to me. I'd like to see another photo of bird without the fencing.

    Could it be a black sex link rooster? I've seen some with similar coloring.

    Eta: I'm think the buff silkie is a mix, wrong comb color for pure silkie

    hatchery silkies commonly look like that. Could be a sex link rooster too.
