Your terms are a little misconstrued.

Silkies are bantams...meaning small sized birds vs. large fowl birds.
Frizzle means the genetics so that the feathers curl (frizzle).

Silkie feathers are hairlike in their appearance rather than the normal chicken feather that "sticks" together as they lack the barbs on the feathers to make them "stick" together to form what could be described as a "paddle."

A frizzled Silkie has curled hairlike feathers. You can also have curled regular feathers in any chicken breed. That curling is simply "frizzle."

Silkies often are bred for "frizzle," and due to the genetics it is possible that your bird could carry some of the frizzling gene modifiers.

Here is a good article on frizzles.
