    At the feed store I was told that these were bantam silkie frizzles. Isn't that what a sizzle is?

    frizzle plus silkie = sizzle but those aint sizzles as their wing feathers dont look like they are sticking out like they would if they had the frizzle gene infact those aint even silkies wrong color of legs and skin, do they have 5 toes?

    No, they only have 4 toes. At the feed store some of them had curly feathers, so I figured they were all that way and picked those two. I didn't realise these ones didn't.

    Frizzle's feathers curl at different rates. Some frizzles do not curl, but carry the frizzling gene. I picked up a frizzle last year. She was very late in feathering.

    Oh she's so cute! :love Just got my very first sizzle a week ago :D His name is George, and I really want to breed him to my silkies and my polish pullet. [​IMG] I have one of his daughters that turned out to have the silkie feathers. [​IMG] But she has light skin (not that you'd be able to tell - she looks like 100% fluff with a beak).. everything else looks pure silkie :p
