    I rescued this beautiful boy from being butchered because his owner had too many roos. I can see Polish frizzle but I'm wondering if he doesn't even has some silkie in him. His feathers are so long and soft, more like my sizzle than my frizzles. Is there such a thing as a polish sizzle? :)
    I named him Spike and I love him to bits!

    He does look like he has polish, frizzle, and silkie in him! Happy you saved him! I would say he is as you call him a 'polish sizzle'. Good luck!

    Does he have five toes on each foot? I would lean towards him just being a Polish Frizzle, especially since his skin appears to be redder than I would expect usually in a Silkie cross. But, if he has five toes, he might very well be a Silkie/Polish Frizzle mix.

    I did not know that about the toes. Thank you!
    As soon as I can catch him I will count them. :)
