    I just had a cute little frizzle hatch. She has light skin and black feathers, but she has 5 toes. I know nothing about chicken breads but is 5 the normal number of toes (they look like silkie feet) [​IMG]

    frizzle is not a breed, it just refers to the feathers.

    Could be a sizzle chick - a silkie/frizzle cross.

    For pure-bred frizzled cochin bantams (which are what most people just refer to as frizzles) the correct number of toes is four, like most other chickens.
