    I love these little ones so much! I hatched them from BYC eggs. Are they frizzles or sizzles? Any idea what the sex could be? They are only 3 weeks old.

    Also my only silkie that lived from another hatch and idea of color and sex?
    This little one has the best personality but does not have enough toes. I love the color also, could this be a lavender or blue?

    A sizzle is a Silkie crossed with a Frizzled breed, like a cochin

    The top two are frizzled and carry the frizzle gene, the bottom does not.

    You'll have to count the toes to tell if there are silkie genes in there.

    Thank you! I hope I can breed these also! I understand I will need a smooth feather to get a better chance of getting the frizzle gene. So I think I could breed one of the frizzles to my plain feather silkie? Or should I breed to a cochin? Thanks, I need a few lessons in chick breeding for the frizzles. I have fallen in love with these guys! Yes, camelot farms [​IMG]:weee is a Grandmother!
