    Wouldn't that be a Frizzle?
    I am just learning about Frizzles and Sizzles so I can't be sure what you call that cross.
    I do have a few Frizzles and a Sizzle. I didn't hatch any of them, they were bought or given to me.

    Quote:just to clarify, no, that would not be a frizzle or a sizzle... well possibly a frizzle...

    a frizzle is a bird with a genetic defect in it's feathers that makes them curl forward.. it can happen in a lot of breeds... but most of what i've seen if it just says frizzle is cochin... otherwize they usually add the breed.. frizzle seramas for instance....

    a sizzle is a cross of a silkie and a frizzled bird.. so i guess a silkie /ee cross could be sizzle if the EE was frizzle....

    then to get you further confused, there's frazzles and i assume sazzles... where they get 2 copies of the frizzled gene and have brittle feathers that break

    a silkie bred to a smooth EE would for most intents still be an EE due to the fact that EE is a mix to begin with....
    or you could call it a mutt, or a hybrid, or a barnyard mix, or just call it cute and be done with it... lol...

    i'm curious to see pics of silkie/ee mixes too
