I am not sure how she bred the variety in... but here is more eye candy of the frizzle

This is what I was hoping little eggie would turn into... By the end of it I was just grateful for the one little chick. We can't keep roos here... so I am hoping hen :)

Legs look pretty yellow here

but Pali's (shipped chick) legs aren't yellow like other chooks.

No idea what was bred to get those birds. Looks like they have the Blue/Black/Splash gene. But the breeder is a long way from getting them back to the New Hampshire build/body type.
