    I bought this little hen from a farn with around 50 free range birds of all different breeds and sizes. Now she's laying and my cuckoo silkie (bought as a pullet) has turned out to be a roo so they now have 4 eggs in the bator. i know shes a frizzle but I can't figure out her color/pattern![​IMG]

    she looks like a sizzle in that picture, and I'd say a sliver partridge in color. Does she have 5 toes or feathered shanks or dark skin or some feathers sticking out the top of her head?

    shes got 5 toes, some reverse mohawk and lightly feather feet, nothing to brag about. I believe her skin is black now that you mention it. And i remember seeing a terrible quality silkie roo strutting around. Oh man, I didn't even think sizzle, I just assumed terrible quality frizzle....

    here is a better pic of her (on right) with her (now deceased) sister on left. The baby daddy cuckoo roo is also in there. I hope I don't end up with birds with hollow feathers that I've read break and fall out [​IMG][​IMG]
