    We bought 6 frizzle-cross eggs to incubate, with 2 hatching. Pics of them at 2 days old and then at 4 weeks. Can anyone help with what they may be crossed with and also their sex? One is definitely more frizzle-y than the other, does that mean anything? Obviously we would love for them both to be girlies!

    Frizzle is a gene, not a breed, so they could be anything. They do look to have some cochin in them, with the feathered legs and straight combs. As for what else could be there, I don't know. And, it looks like you have a pair. The larger one looks to be a roo.

    Pretty chickies, their heads look like hens but their feathering is rooish, so I don't know their gender at this point. It looks like one will be smooth feathered.

    Looks like you have a nice sizzle pair there to me. Sizzles are a cross between a Frizzled cochin and a silkie. They are absolutely gorgeous.

    Looks like it'll be a roo on the left and a pullet on the right, both from the combs and the way they hold themselves. However, that's definitely not definitive

    As mentioned by acid_chipmunk one shows the frizzled gene and one doesn't. The frizzled one looks to be the rooster. They aren't sizzles or they would probaly have 5 toes dark skin and a little crest.
