    I do not think it is a frizzle. The frizzle feathers tend to stick out farther.

    I think it may be one. Mine started out that way. You will be able to better tell in another couple of weeks. It seems like they feather out more slowly.

    They still have some baby fluff, but what's coming in is not like my other Siklies. It would be super cool to have a frizzle. I wish I could get better pics but my Crackberry takes yucky ones. [​IMG]

    Yeah it looks like one, but its not called a frizzle


    Frizzle + Silkie = Sizzle

    Sizzle it is! I thought they were sizzles when they were silkies bred with frizzled birds? These are from two Silkies, both mine. Either way, I'm pretty stoked![​IMG]

    Quote:Nope a sizzle is a pure silkie with frizzling feathers.
    And i dont think yours is a sizzle, Not to be rude but it looks like just bad feathering comeing in.
    It happens alot, but it is still a cutie.
