    Only one pic is showing, but that chick does not have any Silkie in it at all. No idea what it is at this point. Needs to feather in before we try to guess.

    None of those chicks look like Silkie chicks at all.

    Feed store or breeder?

    If from a feed store, you can try to narrow things down by talking with customer service. What hatchery, what was ordered, etc.

    If a breeder, you'll need to go back to them and find out what they could be, or what they're mixes of. But there's no Silkie recently in their ancestry. Silkie traits are usually strongly dominant.
