    Can someone tell me what to call these beautiful hens? Both hens have 5 toes & blue skin. Are they frizzled silkies or sizzles? I'm so confused!

    Whatever they are, I love there split tails =)

    Can anyone tell me what color my Rooster is considered? He is actually a little darker gray then the photo shows.

    Thanks!

    if they have regular feathering then they are frizzles if they have silkie feathers then they are sizzles...they look like they have regular feathers so i would say frizzled. if they are part silkie then breed to the roo and you should get some sizzles i think

    roo cant really help with reminds me of calico coloring though

    Thank you,

    I was thinking they were sizzles. I have lots of eggs being incubated, so I can't wait to see what they hatch!
