    I have frizzle Cochin bantams some smooth some curly and I have silkie bantams. In both breeds I have reds, blacks and whites. Solids. I recently incubated some of their eggs and this is one of the babies I got. He or she has 5 toes on each foot. I had bought silkies and frizzles hoping to breed for sizzles so my question is, is that what I got??? Is it a sizzle??? [​IMG]

    Beautiful chick, I think it has regular feathers but the heavily feathered feet most likely come from a cochin. Do you have any Salmon Faverolles hens, I believe they also have 5 toes and feathered feet. Really doesn't seem to have anything from a silkie, no black skin, no walnut come, no silkie crest

    No faverolles just frizzle Cochin bantams and silkies. My frizzles have straight combs.

    Not a "sizzle," since that is a frizzled silkie, and this chick has unfrizzled, non-silkie feathers. Probably is a Silkie/Cochin mix, though.
