    [/In case you haven’t heard of them a Sizzle is a cross between a Silkie & a Frizzled Cochin. Here is the description I put on the Sizzle list
    “[I]This page is for enthusiasts of the new poultry breed called Sizzles. It is for the sharing of information, history and experiences in the breeding and raising of this new breed of chicken. The Sizzle is a cross between the Silkie & a Frizzled Cochin (or another Frizzled breed). It will have the crest, blue skin, five toes & comb of a Silkie with hard curly feathers. Basically following the Silkie standard but, with a different feather. They come in all the same colors and some of the non regulation colors also. Their temperments are usually the easy going temperments of the Silkies & the Cochins also[/I].”
    We as a group are expanding on that standard for our breed & hope to someday get them recognized as a breed

    I’m starting my F4 generation this year. I raised over 200 chicks last year and ended up with 40 I considered good enough to breed this year. I’m hoping for a larger percentage of better birds this year. I would really love to find some others who have been breeding for awhile. I’d like to expand my gene pool & bring in some new genetics and perhaps share mine with someone who wants to do the same.

    If you know of anyone who is interested in Sizzles I’d love to hear from them. They can reach me here or on the Sizzle list at [URL='http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Sizzles/<br><br>SarahsSizzles']http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Sizzles/

    Find the photo you want to include (it has to be stored on the internet somewhere), right click and select "copy image location." Then past that into your post, select the whole thing and press the IMG button.
