    I thought I had a little roo....then he started laying eggs! [​IMG]: I got her from a batch of sizzle eggs I ordered...some hatched out the regular sizzle, some like this. She's the only one I kept. What do I get when I breed her to a normal silkie? I have read through the genetics 1,000 times and can't seem to get it straight in my head! lol Please help!

  2. Hi! She is so cute!
    She looks like she is silkie feathered and frizzled. If that's what she is --- mating her to a 'regular' Silkie will give you chicks that are 100% silkie feathered, and 50% will be frizzled (like she is) and 50% will be smooth (like a regular Silkie).
    Good luck!
