I went to a local breeder that had one silkie, and one sizzle - to see if he would sell me a dozen of their hatching eggs. He had been eating them! Anyway.. He gave me ONE - yes only ONE egg. It hatched on May 5th - along with 9 of my own silkies. Not one of those eggs were infertile or failed to hatch.. So I've been watching closely.. trying to figure out if I lucked out and had a sizzle chick...This is the one in question@ 1 week old.@ a day shy of 2 weeks oldPlease oh please tell me I'm not just imagining the curly feathers!I know I will get more - but George (the sizzle rooster) - which I convinced the local breeder to sell me for $7 - is very clumsy in his mating attempts (I've seen him hold on to a girl's hackles and 'hump' the ground) and my two silkies have gone broody, so no more eggs from them for a bit..The father.
