    Great pics! That silkie is adorable. Is it just me, or does it look frizzled?

    Hey there..Im not sure if you were actually serious about the Frizzle question or are joking, so I want to cover both bases..

    A Frizzle chicken's feathers actually grow Out and toward their heads as opposed to regular feathers that lay flat against the chicken.

    Hope that helps, but Im sure there are better answers out there...

    I was seriously asking that question lol :[

    So, it's still a silkie, right? Just a Frizzled Silkie?
    Or is Frizzled a type of chicken as well?

    Hello, sorry it's taken me a bit to answer ya, but the baby is still a Silkie , just frizzle feathering.

    There are Cochins and Frizzled Cochins for another example.

    Hope this helps.

    BEAUTIFUL pics of the babies , by the way !!!
