Sizzles are very unusual & are on their way to being recognized as a new breed of bantam. Ours are now in their 8th generation & the chicks are getting cuter & more unique looking every year while still maintaining the sweet & gentle personality of the Silkie (which it should closely resemble in all traits but the type of feathering). With body feathers curled backwards & neck feathers curling around their face until their head resembles a Chrysanthemum with eyes, these little guys are the most comical yard ornaments you will ever see. It's almost impossible to look at them without smiling or sometimes even laughing out loud! They are definitely an overdose of cute. They come in both frizzle & smooth varieties. Both types are beautiful & totally different from any other breed. Like their Silkie ancestors, Sizzles are non-flyers so a 24" garden fence will keep them happily contained!
When grown, the hens will provide you with eggs for breakfast & the roosters will be flock guardians keeping an eye out for predators. Both will forage in your yard, grazing on grass & plucking bugs off your plants. Just watching them go about their business is both relaxing & entertaining, and It’s great fun when you walk into your yard & have them all running to greet you, begging to be picked up & cuddled.
****NOTE: If you are interested in later batches, want colors I don't currently have available, or want a mixture of Sizzles, Silkies, or Frilkies, please email or give me a call & I will be happy to do a special order hatch for you.
As much as we love these little goofballs, we can't keep all of them (contrary to popular opinion, you CAN have too much of a good thing!!), so we need to find these chicks the best homes possible with people who will enjoy them as much as we do. We won't sell chicks less than 10 days of age and our $8-$12 chicks are 10 days to 3 wks old & well started. We also have a few 4-5 week old chicks, almost fully feathered, for $10-$15 each, & a few 6 wks to 4 mos chicks already outside for $12-$25 each.
We have a wide range of colors in both frizzled & smooth varieties - all cute & very unique. All of our chicks have great temperaments & personalities & tame down quickly so they can be easily handled by children & adults. BE CAREFUL! Most of our Sizzles prefer to be “Lap Chickens” & you may find yourself buying “Chicken Diapers” for your little darlings!
No cramped cages for our birds - Our adults either free range or are housed in large open pens. We are not a business or a hatchery & the quality & condition of our birds reflects that they are loved & well cared for. Our chicks are pest free, have been medicated, and are on an Electrolyte/vitamin regimen to help ease any stress from being rehomed. We supplement their diet with yogurt, cottage cheese & mealworms so they are very healthy & well started. An instruction sheet on care & feeding is available, plus free phone advice any time you have a question.
If interested, please email or call 916-645-1151. Thanks for looking.
We're having a great year at the poultry shows!!! We started the year at the large Stockton PPBA show. We entered 14 birds & came home with: 1 fifth, 1 third, & 10 FIRSTS, with 5 going on to win BOV (Best of Variety) & 3 going on to win ROV (Reserve of Variety). We also entered a Sizzle & a Frizzled Silkie and did well. Each took 1st in their division & the Sizzle went on to take Best Variety & the Frizzled Silkie went on to take Reserve Variety. Blossom & FuzzBott have let the wins go to their little fuzzy heads & they now expect to be treated like the queens they think they are. I expect the girls will soon be trying to lay golden eggs for us!
Since then, we've received word of numerous show wins from several proud owners of our birds. They're bringing home prizes at all levels of competition at various poultry & county fair shows. Besides all the firsts, Silkie & Sizzle wins also include several BOV, ROV, BOB, & Best Featherfoot. Congratulations to everyone!!!
