    I'd say Silkie since he appears to have that little "head poof" going on.

    Any chance he could get the poof and feathered legs from mom?

    What is the mom?

    It's definitely a silkie cross, but if the mom was a silkie, then dad was more than likely something else. Two silkies should have produced dark skin.

    Jody is right.

    So it would depend on what mom is before deciding who dad is.

    I don't see any silkie in that bird. No dark skin which is a dominant trait. Kind of looks like a sultan cross... or from your list a leghorn roo. Who's the mom though?

    If mom is silkie then I'd say Dad is the leghorn

    Not silkie feathered, which says at least one parent was NOT silkie feathered. If mom was a silkie, but only had one copy of FM, that can explain the light skin. Yellow legs indicate daddy must be the leghorn (if silkie and leghorn are the only options)
