I purchased a few you chicks from a lady that said she was un aware of what they were. Any ideas on what this one is?

You would be correct. This is a Silkie x Silver Spangled Spitzhauben. The silver spangling is a dominant trait.

Except that doesn't explain his straight comb. I'm not sure what comb type spitzhauben have but if I don't think either parent could be a pure silkie given the straight comb unless the silkie parent had an incorrect comb. Straight comb is recessive so both parents have to be carriers.

I'm thinking he's just a barnyard mix with a lot of silkie and spangled influence in the gene pool.
