    They sure look lavender to me as well...

    The Silkie looks like a blue partridge.

    Is frazzle and frizzle different things? If so I hadn't heard of them! But it does look frizzled.

    That top picture looks like my Splash cochin pullets. My girls don't have too many of the Splash markings yet, but they are light colored just like that. Beautiful birds, all of them.

    I would say self blue cochin
    maybe a partridge silkie
    and I am going to say frazzle b/c usually frizzle's feathers curl and go up more. [​IMG]

    I've always heard that frazzle is when it gets a frizzle gene from both hen and roo and the feathers are brittle and break easy, also look kinda bald in places.. someone correct me if I'm wrong but thats what I'd always heard..

    Quote:You would be correct...

    Frizzle + Frizzle = Frazzle

    Thats why it's usually suggested that you breed a frizzled bird to a smooth feathered bird.
