    I am picking up these silkie girls this week, I am aware that they arent the best quality and I'm not too sure what their color would be classified as. I am wondering with rooster would give me the better pairing in your opinions. My black and silver rooster is a very nice quality, my white silkie is a frizzled silkie. My white silkie has the off colored comb I'm aware but he came from a hen and rooster pairing that were both pure black. I'm wondering who would be best paired to these two hens

    I'd go with the black and silver one since its an actual silkie.
    Your white "silkie" that is frizzled with the red comb is a silkie mix so it depends if you want to produce silkie or silkie mix chicks.
