    Silkies should have black skin, black beak & comb, black legs & feathered feet with 5 toes. Either your chick is a silkie mix or common hatchery quality. Maybe a better photo without the shade, would show characteristics much better. I can't see any comb etc.

    Edited picture. No black beak or legs. Beak has a slightly hawkish look. Supposed to be purebred, though employees aren't sure of breed.

    Sultan pictures look pretty likely.
