Is she a sizzle and if so, a silver partridge?

    Hi all, I'm VERY new to chickens and picked this hen up from a free range farm. I also bought a silkie cuckoo pullet that ended up a roo and now I have fertilized eggs! I'm interested in learning about genetics (rather than see what hatches:) but I guess I would need to know her color first. She was sold to me as a frizzle but a fellow BYCer pointed out her 5 toes and reverse mohawk...any help/suggestions?[​IMG]


    she is on far right, her deceased sister on far left and the cuckoo roo is next to her

    sorry about your loss

    but all offspring between them will have a crest, 5 toes, feathered shanks, can range in skin color from dad to mom. some will be frizzled feathered some smooth feathered. some might have dad's silkie feathers while others look like mom. Hope this helps
