    I have three sizzles less than a week old and I'm not sure what color they are. The first baby is the real mystery. She is a very light gray. There's a blue tinge to the gray and I'm wondering if she is going to be a light blue? She only has four toes instead of five:(

    Here are all three together. I'm assuming the baby on the right is a black?

    And the third baby, whose mother was a frizzled cochin taking part in the breeding program, would be what? Black? Blue? Mottled?

    I can't tell if any of them are going to have frizzled feathers yet. And for that matter how do I tell if they have the correct "regular" feathers or silkied feathers? This is my first time with sizzles! Any sizzle/silkie experts out there?

    Ok well sizzle no. 1 looks very like splash to me! a nice colour in silkies
    sizzle no. 2 + 3 look like blues to me!

    youll have to wait a few weeks to see the frizzling or silkying on the feathers.
