Paint Sizzles ~ I Hope !

Sizzle chicks are hatching ! Yesterday morning I checked under this frizzled white bantam cochin to discover the first egg of her clutch had hatched. A tiny still wet from the egg chick was under her, and she was very angry with me for disturbing her and the chick.

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 ?


  1. I will be anxious to see the results. I live in a state where every kind of fowl is having to be destroyed. The bird flu is spread throughout the state of Iowa.

    1. She hatched chicks out but another bantam hen stole them and is raising them.

  3. Oh how exciting but come on, do tell!

    1. Sorry I did not reply Stella. She did hatch out chicks and another bantam hen stole them to raise up. They are now grown and laying eggs.
