    As I'm kind of new to the world of chickens and have developed this addiction..I mean... interest in breeding Sizzles, I could use some imput on the hows & whats of getting stable lines of nice quality Sizzles. Has anyone nailed this down yet or is it mostly still a gamble?

    I currently have 4 roosters "working" on this. My Frizzle in with my Silkies, my Silkie in with smooth crosses, my Smooth cross in with my frizzled crosses & my Frilkie (frizzled silkie) with some more smooth crosses. My two best Sizzle hens were with a Silkie roo untill this week when he went off to the fair. I'm just starting to get chicks from these pairings and am anxious/excited to see what I get.

    Would love to hear what's working for you if your willing to share!

    Wow...that was a harsh response... Its the same as a nonsense being a recognized dog breed. It's a Lhasa Apso crossed with a pekineese. Or the newer "mutt" breeds as you call it...puggles, labradoodles, etc.
    I got some sizzle eggs and regular silkies in the incubator right now. Mutts are cute!

    Quote:Just whatever people want these days. People want birds that are going to stand out. And that is what you get when you make sizzles. Sizzle popularity is getting big.
