    The person sold this bird to me as a blue, sizzle, pullet. She said it was about three months old...

    I know it isn't blue, it looks more like a frizzle cochin then a sizzle, and with that much comb it seems to me it is probably a cockeral...makes me wonder how old he/she/it really is...

    My friend breeds frizzle/sizzle bantams. She gets a lot like what you have from a smooth feathered colorful bantam crossed with a blue or partridge silkie and gets about 50 percent curled feathers and crests (sizzle), 25% curled with no crest (frizzle) and the rest just smooth with and without crests. Here are some photos.

    It's a silkie mixed with a possible Cochin. Almost looks to be a silkie/polish
