Frizzle? Sizzle? Cochin? Silkie? Can someone help with breeds and colors?

    I picked up these chicks yesterday. I meant to get three. In any case... I have a bunch of new birds. The woman I got them from had beautiful frizzles, sizzles, and silkies, and I think I saw a few SLW too? Not sure all what else was there, but was hearing these called frizzles and/or sizzles? I intended to walk away with just three or so (at least, that's what I told the BF before we went, but really I did mean to stick to it!) and kind of lost track of what she was saying about them as we went. There's a couple I suspect are pullets but really I'm new at this and would love to know what you guys think in terms of breed, sex, and color.

    In any case, I'm thrilled. The farm they came from was clean and beautiful, her chickens impeccably cared for, and these little ones are so much more friendly and personable than what I have gotten from the feed store.

    How old are they? Not sure about breeds but I'm seeing a lot that could be cockerels.

    All but 5, 7, 9, and 11 look to be Silkie crosses. The others are likely Cochins. Some are smooth and some are frizzled. None are Sizzles.

    The breeder said 4-6 weeks, with the oldest being possibly 8-10... plus that one little guy who is clearly much younger.
