    Brought 3 silkies, 5 lemon cuckoo. (All day old chicks) it looks like I received 4 & 4. But this chick is growing faster than the other silkies. Any thoughts?

    It might be a sizzle. (Frizzled Cochin crossed with a Silkie)

    Frizzle chick with red coloring over wings, could indicate a boy.

    Definitely a frizzle. It could be from someone's Sizzle project, and I'd guess they've just gotten started from pink skin on that chick (or maybe someone fence hopped and it was a complete accident).

    What breed are the lemon cuckoo chicks (out of curiosity)?

    I ordered 5 lemon cuckoo. But one of them ended up being this one (frizzle or sizzle) I did message her and she said yes she accidentally made a mistake and would trade me for a lemon cuckoo if I wanted. I said I will keep the sizzle. Can anyone tell me the color? Maybe buff sizzle? Thanks
