    i picked up this white Frizzle hen last week and want to know what breed she is?? she is a bantam. about 9 mo. to a year old, laying eggs just not for me yet. the lady i got her from found her on the side of the road when she was a chick and said she only had a few feathers. she looks great now and i just love her! she is so sweet. she lets me hold her and tolerated the kids petting her.

    I know i know this has been explained and i looked at all the threads about it and im still confused a bit with the frizzle silkie breeding and frizzle breeding whatever so...
    also another question as i am SO confused on the whole frizzle dizzle breeding deal i cant quite figure it out! [​IMG] [​IMG] so here is a picture of lil' mamas boyfriend Homeboy.(the lady i got this pair from, her teenagers named them. she was to funny about it she said they listen to rap and named the frizzle and silkie! [​IMG] ) he is a black silkie. what will i get if i can get some fertilized eggs out of these 2. i want more frizzles. should i get her a cochin bantam roo to get frizzle dizzles?? i am not sure exactly the difference in the sizzle dizzles and frizzled sizzles dizzle dizzy!! [​IMG] i get that if you breed a frizzle to a smooth feather you will get only 50% frizzle but the whole sizzle thing im a mess! lol i am curious to what the chicks would be with these 2?

    The frizzle is, like most frizzles out there, a Cochin. Your "Silkie" technically is not a Silkie though. . . He's not even silkie feathered.

    Offspring from those two will indeed create "Sizzles," whereas 50% of them will be frizzled, 50% will look like your "Silkie" - normal feathering but a Silkie body.

    Sizzles are ADORABLE [​IMG] !!!! I just sold my flock off not long ago, I got them to where I wanted them and I guess I felt like it was time for someone else to enjoy them.

    The smooth feathered Sizzles are my favorite and were quite popular with visitors [​IMG]
    The silk feathered Sizzles just look like regular Silkies.
    The Frizzled Sizzles are just too cute for their own good!! I only had 2 of them that I kept to adulthood, but they never had the big crests like the silkie because I had to outcross for them(their daddy was a frizzle cochin so no crest). They really just looked like Frizzles with dark skin and usually single combs.

    You might get some strange colorations because they are such different colors & Their babies will have little to no crest because momma has no crest. My Sizzles were some of the sweetest chickens I ever had though and my best broodies, most of them even laid eggs daily.


    ETA: I started off with a couple Sizzle pullets that a show breeder was giving away, her silkies & frizzles had Winter fling and they were the undesireable result. I didn't start from "scratch" like you're talking about, I guess I got lucky.... I still think they'll make cute chicks [​IMG]

    Actually he IS a Silkie, he just has more hard feathers than he should. You should get some pretty cute babies breeding them together! Please keep us udated.


    ETA:The more I look at him, the more I think he is actually a pretty nice looking Silkie. His wattles are a little too large, even for a non-bearded Silkie, and he does have too many hard feathers in his tail, but he should be great to breed with Lil Momma!

    Your frizzle cochin and silkie rooster are very pretty! Don't worry, your rooster DOES have the silkie feathers! Don't know why someone would suggest that he doesn't, lol. Maybe they misread the question. The first generation babies will contain some frizzles and some smooth feathered birds. The babies will most likely have 5 toes, a crest and darker skin from dad. If you take the frizzle females from this generation and breed them back to the father or another silkie you should get some silkie feathered babies, some of who may end up silkie feathered AND frizzled!

    Really a cute pair of birds!

    Agreed? 0.o I see a silkie. Not a good quality silkie, but still, a silkie...

    I love frizzle your is nice. I don't think you will get 50% frizzles, maybe 30%, and no silkie the 1 year if you breed the pullets back to a silkie you may get silkies. I think that you will like all the colors that you get from this breeding....Frizzle are fun. You don't want to breed 2 frizzle together you can get frizzle/frizzle or naked chickens..

    Nice birds, you will not get any Silkie feathered birds in the first generation. Silkie feathers require two recessive genes (one from each parent). Your Frizzled Cochin hen will not be carrying that gene.
