    Sizzles? I have 2 pens of Sizzles!

    Here is a link to my web page ......http://www.westknollfarm.com/Sizzles.html

    This is one pen I have going.....

    This is one that is now grown and in a breeding pen.

    Here she is grown and in breeding with Buff Boy.

    This is Buff Boy and Scarlet.

    These are the 3 girls laying right now with Buff Boy since Elvis is on her eggs and won't be laying for another month or so. There is Lint, Scarlet and Mudd.

    I have started collecting eggs and setting them again from these pens. I do not have chicks yet but I can sell hatching eggs or when the chicks hatch in 3 weeks I can sell those. Whatever Elvis is sitting on should hatch in another 2 weeks but I think I only let her have 4 eggs.

    I was just abt to ask whom Amy was, then I was like duh, Amy Nadine. When I was at her farm I only saw one. Should have known there was more than one.

    Amy, keep me posted as to when they hatch pls..

    I raise them as well and have many chicks running around. I have a hard time parting with the chicks but I do occasionally sell hatching eggs.
    right now I have a calico silkie roo over a splash sizzle. I have many colors from them ranging from including whites.
    I get about 3/4 sizzles, a few smooths and some silkies. and some of the sizzles feathering turn into normal silkie feathering at a few weeks old. (these would be ones that have mild curling as babies).

    I have just starting set them in the bator so should have chicks in about 3 weeks. I am setting a few each week now so next time you come over I should have an assortment of chicks in many colors and patterns.
    I don't plan to have more than 50 like last year though. I just want to see what these pens in these combinations may produce.
