    he's a frizkie (frizzled silkie), which means he's silkie feathered and frizzled...

    A sizzle is frizzled normal feather..

    I thought a Silkie with Frizzled feathers was called a Sizzle? Sooo confused now! [​IMG] A frizzle is a frizzled normal feather, I thought?

    Frizzle Cochin + Normal Silkie = Frizzled bird with normal feathers = Sizzle. That's how I understand it.
