    Can you tell what these are? I bought them off ebay and they were suppose to be Cochin x Silkie = Cochin Frizzles. Does this look right? To me they are just super cute little fluff balls. Any insight would be awesome.

    Hard to tell at this age, but a Cochin x Silkie results in the cutest of all known chickens... a sizzle!

    CUTE! It is hard to tell but I have Cochin x Silkie cross chicks and they are friendly and make great moms for hatching eggs. Mine did look like your black chicks. Update us in a couple of months!

    Cochins x Silkies do not give you Frizzle Cochins. It gives you a cross of the two with feathering of the Cochin and the skin, crest, and 5 toes of the Silkie. "Sizzles" are not a breed, not a recognized one anyway, and they are produced when you cross a Silkie with a Cochin Frizzle.
