    Ok after a bunch of tries going way back to last Christmas I have been trying for a frizzled chook. I then decided I wanted a frizzle silkie. Finally Kelly came to my rescue and I got a bunch of eggs. Well I hatched out 3 blue frizzled silkies! and I am elated. [​IMG]

    now Kelly calles them frizzled silkies which is cool but could someone define what a

    Sizzle, Frizzle, and Frazzle are?

    is there another shorter term for Frizzled Silkie and if so wouldnt it be a sizzle?

    pics in a few I am charging the camera now [​IMG]

    BTW long term goal is Frizzled Lavender Silkies [​IMG]

    Let's see if I am right...
    A sizzle is a silkie x frizzle bird
    A frizzle is any bird with frizzle feathering
    and a frazzle(or curly) is a frizzle x frizzle mating

    ?

    Quote:so the sizzle has silkie feathers but they are frizzled? or are they silkies with frizzling but with regular feathers and not silkie shreaded ones?

    ok here they are in all their glory [​IMG]

    One even has a vaulted scull. I had to hatch this one myself because it had pipped the wrong end and was stuck. Some how it messed up its upper eyelid but I have been treating it and it seems to be improving. [​IMG]
