I really don't see the difference, so can someone post pics of them?
Sizzles have a top knot and probably 5 toes whereas most Frizzles have smoother looking heads and 4 toes.
My website has 2 pages....Frizzles and Sizzles. Go under Breeds and you will see the links.
I'm not seeing any difference. One is spiked, the other just looks like a silkie...
You didn't read the info with each pic.
A Frizzle is a Cochin with frizzled feathers. To get a Sizzle the Cochin would be crossed with a Silkie.
I would say a sizzle has silkie "type" with curled feathers and a frizzle really can be any breed with the curly feathering although cochins are most common.
this is my sizzle "flower"
she has silkie type and 5 toes but has a straight comb- I am crossing her with a silkie male in hopes to get the walnut comb and frizzled feathers
Frizzled neked neck roo. ( I think)
Ok, frizzle is curled spiked feathers. What about sizzle? Is sizzle just more smooth, more silkie-like with fewer spikes/curls?
Or is it just a name for a mix of two, w/e chicken mixed with a silkie would be called sizzle?
I have two chicks, one is supposed to be sizzle, the other frizzle. But both seem to be more silkie with a few feathers slightly curled/spiked.
When a Silkie has frizzle-type feathers, we call it a Sizzle. Here's a pic of our Sizzle cockerel, displaying the top knot.
All other breeds with frizzle-type feathers, though most commonly cochin, are Frizzled. Here's a pic of our little Frizzle cochin pullet.
Quote:Huh! Well mine look nothing like that, lol. But they are Cochins with silkie feathers...or something..I'm so confused, lol.
I believe that a Sizzle is a Silkie with non- silkied, frizzled feathers. It would be a first generation cross between a Silkie and a frizzled bird of some breed. Yours seems to be results of Sizzles crossed back to a Silkie. They have retained the frizzle gene, and they have gained a hookless gene. I know of a breeder who calls them "Frizkies".
