    Photo of my son Johnny & his non-frizzle partridge/red sizzle aptly named "Chicken". Chicken enjoys (we think) car rides, bucket rides and tractor rides in the trailer while I'm cutting grass (with Johnny of course). He/She? is a very tolerent bird, and rides on Johnny's shoulder. Chicken is from a mating of a partridge silkie hen to a red frizzle bantam cochin rooster and was purchased from a friend. We think this is a pullet but I'm not 100% certain yet. Thanks!

    From what I've read you need smooth to frizzle breedings to produce quality frizzled feathering, so IMO you need some non-frizzles to some extent. To keep breeding frizzle to frizzle would produce bad feathering, brittle twisted feathers. So to me frizzle x silkie = sizzle, both in frizzle & non-frizzle to take back to each other. At least that's my own understanding of the new combo. Anyone else have any take on that?
    Thanks

    Quote:It's true that you cannot breed frizzle x frizzle, for fear of ending up with a curly, but if you look at it that way, any bird alive would be eligible to win a frizzle contest. A frizzle is a bird with the backwards feathers, the contest isn't for birds that breed with frizzles to make more frizzles. A sizzle is a frizzled silkie, and you cannot say that simply because you could cross a silkie with a sizzle, that it could be considered a sizzle, because a regular silkie is not a sizzle.

    OK, I thought they were trying to make it a breed of it's own. And always needing to hybridize it with a silkie to keep it non-frizzle to frizzle and make more sizzles would always keep it a hybrid wouldn't it? Of course if that's the point for it to just remain a hybrid I guess it doesn't really matter though. I think I'll stick with frizzles OR silkies and not the combo and leave the non-sizzle non-frizzle thingee my son has all to him. LOL [​IMG]

    Yeah, it's like a frizzled cochin. It's technically a cochin, that carries the frizzle gene.
