    After not being able to find a replacement cochin roo without having to try and ship in this #*&#[email protected] cold, I am wondering about just putting one of my extra black silkie roos in with my back frizzle cochins. What does that produce? Would anyone be interested?

    I am going to finish my breeding barn this weekend if it kills me, and I am trying to figure out what to do with that last group of hens......

    Thoughts? Thanks!

    Hi Katie, you hope to get something like this:

    Alot of people on this forum call the breed a sizzle. Try a search on sizzle and you will find quite a few of us that have them.

    I've always wondered what a sizzle was!

    Hmmmm..... black frizzles will be going in with the black and splash silkie roo as soon as the pen is done. Hopefully everyone will be friendly! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    O yes it is something to work on, you dont always get sizzles. You can get frizzled silkies but they are cute too.

    Check out my website for a description on what you can expect in breeding your two breeds. Sizzles are eventually going to be a breed unto itself. Basically it will have all the characteristics of a Silkie but with Regular hard feathers. As will all Frizzled birds there will be a smooth and Frizzled variety
