    A lot of the original posters on here were people with chicks they got from me or from my hatching eggs so I'm curious to see if any of them are still here & I'd love to see pictures & if you're still breeding, how many generations you are from my lines.

    Would also love to know if any of you are showing your birds, now matter whose lines they are. We especially need people that are showing the smooth Sizzles as that will help get them recognized by the APA/ABA. Thank you!

    If any of you are on FB sites, you've probably seen these pictures but some of them may be new. Most of these are from 2015-2016 hatches.

    Those have got to be the nicest Sizzles that I have ever seen. You have created some very attractive birds.

    Hi! Most of my Silkies are from you. I have a Cuckoo Silkie cock, a smooth Sizzle Cuckoo pullet, a Buff Silkie hen, and a Black(?) Frilkie hen (she has some odd chocolate colors so I'm not sure she's really Black), a Partridge Silkie cock, and a multicolored Blue/Red ish Frizzled Sizzle cock. I produced about 20 chicks this season from the Cuckoo hen and my Partridge cock but an aggressive strain of Cocci killed all but a couple of them over the course of about three days, since unfortunately it took me until the second day to realize what I was dealing with and put them on Corid (I've never had to deal with Cocci before). I've been using the Cuckoo and Partridge birds to experiment with sex linked Silkies (I spoke to you about this project on the phone a few times last year when looking for birds for the project). The sex link project has produced some surprising results but overall had been showing successful results (until the Cocci thing happened). I've been able to accurately sex all offspring of the cross at one day of age.

    I'm here! I have such wonderful sizzles and a silkie from you. My daughter is showing a smooth sizzle for showmanship. We are new at this and are still a little confused as to what to say regarding the APA acceptance during her little speech. She's only 7 so it gets confusing for her. We have a black smooth sizzle rooster, a blue frizzle sizzle rooster and a splash frizzle sizzle rooster and a splash silkie pullet. Unfortunately the black smooth sizzle can not be shown in the cage because of the red neck feathers but we think he is beautiful and hes the best showmanship chicken ever.

    Your black is beautiful. We picked up chicks from Sheri a few months ago, and they are very striking! Here is the sizzle frizzle. He was all black as a chick, and is now getting a lot of red on him. Someone said he could possibly be partridge, but I am not sure. Still trying to determine sex on this one too.[​IMG] This is our little blue silkie. He is absolutely gorgeous. Pretty sure this is a rooster, but look at his gorgeous top fluff!!! [​IMG] I do not have any pics of our white smooth sizzle this morning, but I must say she is very Fine! Gorgeous white smooth feathers, with a top knot so big she has a hard time seeing! She is a sweetheart too! Thanks Sheri. We will have fun at show.

    Me too! I have three from you @country! A sizzle paint cockerel, a smooth paint pullet and a frizzle cuckoo pullet : )
    Here are some group pics (they are only 2 months old) and I will try and post close ups tonight. They still come inside at night. LoL
