    Is it possible to cross silkie roosters with buff orpingtons and black austrolops?
    Is it possible for two silkie roosters to co-habitate with a small flock? Someone said that two roosters would just wear out only a few birds? One rooster crows, the other is less dominate. They do not seem to fight. They were both born on August 5th from the same hatch.
    Finally what exactly is a sizzle verses a frizzle? What are they crossed with?
    Thanks

    I would think 2 silkie roos would be fine together

    a sizzle is a silkie fizzle mix I believe, and a fizzle is a bird with fizzled feathers can be any breed I believe.

    Although I could and am often wrong....

    I would think that as long as the silkie roo could mate with the other breeds you would get mixes of them.
