    A frizzle is a chicken with feathers that are curled the wrong way. Unless otherwise specified, Frizzles are usually bantam Cochins with frizzled feathers, though there are other breeds that may have frizzled feather (Polish and Seramas, for example). A Sizzle is a bird that otherwise has the coloring and type of a Silkie, but has frizzled feathers (not Silkie feathers, but Silkie type).
