    So, one minute I'm talking witha fellow BYCer about how we hate showgirls, noting the ones with the bowties are even worse!

    The next minute I'm buying this:

    This little fellow (with all that red on the crest we're pretty sure its a cockerel) has caused quite a stir in my neighborhood. He's definitly the funkiest chicken in my flock. I've been asked by a lot of people what was mixed to make him and quite frankly, I don't have any idea! He was a bit plucked when I got him so at first I thought he was normal feathered frizzled but as he developed (and after his recent bath and blow dry) I now see he's quite silkie feathered, and so very soft! He's developing a single comb, mostly pink skinned, 4 toed, silkie frizzled, naked neck with a bowtie.

    What DNA did the aliens mix for this?

    Before his bath...

    He is really cute!
    Frizzle/showgirl?
    Maybe a naked neck frizzle that just has soft feathers?

    IDK if this helps but he's splash colored and has leg feathering.

    I looked at pictures of frizzled turkens and he does look more silkie than them and his skin is a bit more blue in some places so I'm guessing theres silkie in there somewhere...

    I think its a cross between a buzzard and a pom pom.
     
  9. with the bit of topknot, the feathered legs, the silkie textured feathers and the super clean neck...I'd say its a showgirl X frizzled turken or a turken X sizzle. definately silkie in there. Shoot just say showgirl with some sizzling gene and a turken [​IMG] who knows. - lol

    I am not at all a fan of the naked necks, but besides the baldness its cute.

    Quote:I got talked into a little showgirl pullet who was all alone from ChickenZoo (psht, like she had to do much talking) and then about 10 minutes after she left a guy showed up that I bought some seramas from. I put them in the cage with her and he said "I have a bird that looks just like that one." and there he was! I figured the little showgirl needed a friend and almost right away I knew it was a cockerel and she was a pullet so it was perfect. The 2 took to each other right away and he never left her side! Sadly I lost her to wet fowl pox a couple of weeks ago. Oh the poor guy was so depressed. Ive been trying to find him a new girlfriend ever since.
