    The Sizzle Thread!

    I picked up a few additions to my Sizzle project... Got a gorgeous tolbunt Polish frizzled roo and going to cross him on some black Silkies and see what I get. How cool would it be to make a hard feathered silkie type critter with the tolbunt coloring?! I'm not aiming for fancy, high quality...

    Frizzle thread

    I've decided to have a frizzle specific pen, so I bought these beauties from the Carolina Chickenstock. The roo will obviously be in a pen of non-frizzles, and the hens in with a Silkie rooster. Tolbunt Polish roo- I am so in love with this bird... Sizzle hen... Her head is on the right...

    Thanks for the info! She is by far my favorite chicken- she has so much personality. She is hilarious. She also lives to be broody. I bought eggs from Catdance Silkies this week, and she sent me so many extras I couldn't fit them all in the bator. I was all upset thinking about what to do with...

    You're going to make a ridiculous amount of money off me, I have a feeling! LOL

    My lovely girl did not make it, we spent the night giving her subQ fluids and tube feeding, but she was too far gone. After I totally decontaminated myself, I went out and checked every bird in every pen. My one Silkie pen (4 birds) all have slightly sniffly breathing and a tiny bit of crust...

    When bred to my Silkie roo or showgirl roo, she has never, ever produced anything but a regular Silkie chick- and she's hatched out a ton. It confuses me, one would think she would pop out the occasional curly frizzly critter!

    I cooked her up a turkey egg a bit ago, and cut it up in tiny pieces and she ate the whole thing. Then she finished off half a banana. She's a trooper. I feel like her eating and drinking is a sign that she will make it.

    Bump again.. She has a lot of watery green and white poo now. Don't know if that means anything. She's drinking a ton, which I would think explains the explosive watery-ness of the poo.

    Chicken exhibiting labored exhalation

    It's always good to have Tylan on hand. I lost a little cockerel last week to similar symptoms, but I didn't have tylan and Tractor Supply did not have it. I didn't have any other sick birds, but I decided to order it anyway, just in case. Got it in the mail yesterday- then today my favorite hen...

    Thank you, that is an excellent idea. She's a big girl, I may be able to weight her using my bathroom scale- it does pounds and ounces. The good thing is she's been a big, hearty, robust girl so she has extra fat reserves to draw on. But I will monitor her very carefully. Just being what she is...

    My beloved "Winglet" is suffering from what I think is the myco-somethingorother. She's wheezy, gurgling, trouble breathing. Slight nasal discharge, watery eyes. Hunched up and not herself. No odor, and no abnormal poop or anything. I should have realized she was sick last night, Winglet is a...

    So if I were to breed that hen to a curly Sizzle, what would I get?

    What would you call this sweet girl? I'm thinking Frilkie? She's got great skin, comb, correct toes- very Silkie- but her feathers are different. I call her Not-Sizzle.

    Now you should go get on Craigslist and find yourself a tom. Because then, you'd just have to take Turkey Lurkey for him!
