Thread Starter 

_____________ 

Hi Everyone:

I have two WHITE frizzle bantam cochin chicks for sale
and two RED frizzle bantam cochin chicks for sale.
They are NOT sexed and have a recessive frizzle gene....
meaning they are straight feathered.

I am keeping the frizzled feathered ones for myself, to get
one white girl and one red girl out of the bunch ....
then the remaining seven  frizzled feather chicks will be sold as well.


$5 each

Pick up only.



They are 10 days old.  Bought from IDEAL.
Everyone is healthy and happy.



I live 30 miles north of Los Angeles, in
Santa Clarita (home of the Magic Mountain Six Flaggs Theme Park)


Come and get 'em   jumpy:

sorry, for bumping this one more time.....

I will put the chicks up on Craigs List soon, but wanted to try to get someone from the Forum first,  who may love the babies like I love them.


Thanks!

Ummmm......as I understand it the frizzle gene is dominant, not recessive. That's why you don't want to breed frizzle to frizzle -- if you double up on the frizzle trait, you get very brittle feathers. So if you have birds with normal feathers they do NOT carry the frizzle trait, even if they came from a frizzled parent.

Unless there's a second frizzled trait that I haven't heard of yet?

Well, I'm just ignorant on how to say, the chicks that I want to sell have straight feathers coming in !!  sad

So let me just speak plain english, and not try to sound like I know what I'm saying!!  smile

They are frizzle bantams ...
but I am going to sell the ones that have straight feathers coming in
because I want the frizzle feathers for myself .....


but, I will get rid of extra frizzle  feathered babies later, after I determine which ONE white and ONE red that I will keep.



Okay ....
now do I make any sense !!!!???   lol

Sorry,
Lee

Yep LOL  Make sure that if your going to be breeding them that you dont breed a frizzle roo to a frizzle hen.  Be sure that one is smooth feathered, otherwise you'll get curlys.

Oooooo.....

I just did some more reading about frizzle genetics, and it looks like it gets even more complicated than I thought. roll

As I now understand it --

There are TWO genes which affect the frizzle trait. One is the frizzle gene itself.

Then there is a second gene which MODIFIES the frizzle trait. This trait can make the frizzling more or less obvious.

A bird with normal looking feathers which comes from frizzled parents is referred to as "smooth". A bird with normal looking feathers which does NOT come from frizzled parents is evidently referred to as "straight".

The "smooth" bird *may* carry the frizzle modifier gene, and therefore may be a valuable part of a frizzle breeding program.

The "straight" bird does *not* carry the frizzle modifier gene, and is therefore not very useful for a serious frizzle breeding program.

So, although your smooth birds are not frizzled and will not produce frizzles themselves unless bred to a frizzled bird, they may be useful for someone else who is serious about breeding good frizzles.

Sorry, I can't help myself. I'm an information addict! idunnosmack
