    For sale beautiful Gray Sizzle Rooster. This guy is over a year old with Mulberry colored comb and very large vaulted scull and huge crest. He is so fluffy it is AMAZING!!! he is certainly the nicest male sizzle I have ever hatched out. I have to keep downsizing or i would keep him for my own breeding projects. He has nice type and great feet with heavy feathering.

    he is so Fluffy it is hard to see his face [​IMG]

    Quote:believe it or not even though the wind was blowing I did not use any of those pics cause he did not even look like a chicken in those pics just a ball of fluff. he is actually this fluffy with no wind.!

    Quote:you can not breed a sizzle with a sizzle the result would be a double copy of the "frizzling " gene and will result in a chicken with brittle feathers. Often these feathers break and the chicken is unable to regulate body temp and does not live long.

    Breeding a sizzle to a regular featherd silkie will result in 50% sizzles and 50% non sizzled.

    What is nice about having a Sizzle rooster is that all of your silkie hens bred with him will hatch out more sizzles so you get a lot more having a sizzle roo in the flock that will breed with all rather than one sizzle hen.
    I think this boy will produce very nice silkies and sizzles provided he is paired with dark skinned small combed hens. he already has great type, crest, beard and fluff factor. [​IMG]
