How do you make a frizzle chicken?

Your average farm frizzle is not a breed. They are made from breeding a frizzled bird to a smooth (or standard) bird. This practice usually is done with Cochins, Pekins, and Polish. When a frizzled bird and a smooth bird are bred, half their offspring will be frizzled and half will be smooth.

What is the difference between a frizzle and a sizzle chicken?

Sonoran Silkies
Frizzle is a term used to designate that a chicken posesses the gene that cuases their feathers to curl. Sizzle is essentially a frizzled silkie without silkie feathering; a frizzled silkie would have silkie feathering. Sizzle is being worked on as a new breed, not as a new variety of silkie.

How can you tell if you have a rooster?

If the egg has a pointed tip, it's a rooster. Hold them upside down by their feet and the rooster will spring back up quickly. A threaded needle held over the bird's head will swing back and forth over a rooster and in a circular motion over a hen.

Do Frizzle roosters crow?

Crowing. All roosters are loud, it's just a question of relativity. You can try a no crow collar but BYC members have had mixed success with them. Personally, as heartbreaking as it is, I would recommend re-homing your rooster since your subdivision does not allow them.

What to Do When Your Chicken Stops Laying Eggs

How do you kill a rooster to eat?

It's very easy to humanely kill a rooster, as long as you have a sharp knife. You'll also want to gut it almost immediately after killing it, as the organs inside will retain heat and spoil the meat. The night before, remove your rooster from the rest of the chickens. It's ok to give him water, but don't feed him.
