    Ive been pining over frizzled silkies ever since i saw a picture of one [​IMG] but i could never decide which I liked better, the sizzle, or the true frizzled silkie. So what did I do? I bought one of each [​IMG]
    This is my frizzled rooster, hes still a cockeral, and I think he's gonna fill out more. I like that he has a dark comb, although he does have mulberry earlobes. [​IMG]

    Next is my blue sizzle hen

    Here is my sizzle roo, i like that his color is coal black, and he has no leakage. I also like his lion like mane [​IMG]
    His comb is really light though [​IMG]

    Any comments good or bad are welcome. I know they are not the greatest quality, but they are a start and I need to know what to look for in the future [​IMG]

    If you are going to breed make sure and get a smooth one to breed them to.
    I have heard you will get a double frizzle if you breed frizzle to frizzle or sizzle to sizzle
    and it is very hard on the chicks. You might want to do a search on it for more info.
    Cute birds!!
