    I have some Silkie/Frizzle chicks (my sister and I refer to them as 'sizzles') at the moment, about 2 1/2 weeks old. I didn't hatch them myself though, although I hope to hatch my own sizzles at some point.

    They're very cute and it's interesting to look at them as already the traits of the two different breeds are evident and it's fascinating to see which traits they have and which they don't.

    Of six chicks, five have Silkie feet, although in some cases the fourth toe is a little shorter than a normal Silkie. One has four toes on one foot and three on the other, which is a little strange, though. Three of the chicks seem to have normal Frizzle feathers, while the others have Silkie feathers, but they still curl! One of the chicks has a distinct Silkie topknot, while three others have developed smaller tufts on their heads. The other two may or may not develop pom-poms. They all have furry legs, some are very feathery and some just a little bit. One of the chicks is on my profile picture, but you mightn't be able to see it well.

    I hope I've helped,
    from Rachel.
