    looks like a splash crossed with another breed crossed back to a silkie. lots of regular feathers, not to many silkied ones. it's probably not a pure silkie. pretty boy, though [​IMG]:

    most likely a mix, for a number of reasons. One thing is the bright red comb and large wattles, not very silky-ish. [​IMG] and thanks for posting a pic!
