    Here is a photo of the frizzled silkie I got yesterday. Or is it a sizzle? It has silkie feathers. The only hard feathers are the wing feathers. The curly feathers are feathers but very pliable and soft. I'm not sure of the coloring... she's a dark grey color so I'm not sure what that is called besides "dark grey".

    Her mate in the cage had a bigger comb and spikey crest (more mohawk-y). This one doesn't seem to much of a comb and the crest poofs out more.

    She's so small... not sure how old she is, but she's fully feathered. Any guesses? I posted one with my daughter too so you can see the size.

    Yes, it has 5 toes and dark skin. He had her out in the coop with a bunch of other chickens, so I suppose she would be ok, but she still seems so small. We've had her in a cage in the garage since we brought her home. No light or heater but covered with a blanket at night.

  10. I'd say that the polish is a hen but just to be sure, could you post another picture ( from head to tail ). And I would say that the silkie is a sizzle.
