It is deffinately not silk a dragon can not
be het for silkback.
I will not answer for David as to what his animal is het for but if it is a leather back than I have no idea what would be able to make it quad het. Hypo, trans, leather, and smoothie are the only genes that I know of that a dragon can be heterozygous for and if the animal was already a leather than there is a gene that I do not know (which is very possible).

Silkback is the superform of leatherback only resulting from the pairing of 2 visual leathers. and leucistic in bearded dragons is purely a marketing term and not a genetic morph at all. There are no true leucistic bearded dragons.
