My paint Sizzle rooster and a bantam white cochin hen. My rooster is the offspring of a Paint Silkie rooster and bantam white cochin hen. I like the way he looks and he is the head honcho of my bantam flock of sizzles.
He knows he's handsome and struts his stuff proudly.
This is one of my Paint Silkie hens. She's only a few months old here. Her sire was a Paint Silkie and her mama was a white Silkie I bought from Murray MacMurray hatchery, so I don't know more about her ( mama ) than that she is a white Silkie. I am still reading up and learning about 'paint' genetics but the breeding of the rooster and several white Silkie hens has produced quite a few paints for me and I am happy with them thus far. ( Going to keep the black hen from this crossing to see what she hatched out after being bred to her paint half-brother.)
Mama frizzle with her chicks.
Look at this crazy Sizzle. She has a few spots and wacky feathers. Love her !

Just LOOK at those tightly curled feathers !
I put up a small wood nest box in my dove pen for these beauties and they moved right in.

I am kind of excited about these chicks because they are the chicks from her breeding to my Paint Silkie rooster. The next few days will tell , will I have Paint Sizzles or not ?
