How can you tell if silkies chicks will be sizzles?

    I have 5 chicks watched from a sizzle mixed roo and silkie hens. Two of the 2.5 week old chicks wings feathers curve out away from the body. Does this mean they will be sizzles also?

    Yes, those will be frizzled.

    In your photo those frizzled feathers also look hair-like the way silkie feathers are. Cool.

    My sizzles look different. They have curled standard feathers instead of curled silkie feathers.

    20171006_124923.jpg here is one of mine back when she was a few weeks old. I love her light blue/gray feathers with gold at the tips.
