    Looks like a polish mix to me. The silkies have stringy feathers, purple skin, and dark eyes. For the polish, they have a v comb so when they are young it looks like they have abnormal noses. If it is a male by now you would see red in the comb. If you don't any see any red on their comb then they are most likely female.
