    These are silkies, but they're not going to help your friend with showing if that's what she's after. Hatchery silkies do not have good show quality at all. If she wants to show she would be better off getting chicks from a breeder.

    A sizzle is a frizzled or smooth silkie/cochin cross.

    They can't be shown because they are a mixed breed.

    Silkie hens have fuzz hanging more in there face while the males have very little. Also, the males stand up straight while the females are in a more squatting position when they stand.
    Hope this helps! I could probably sex if I could see some pics.
