My OH won't allow frizzles, he says they freak him out, lol... our Silkies look awful though... and they can see now!!
Sure! I'd be happy to do that. And happy to get some more info on the breed out there - last week a bunch of people in the What Breed or Gender is This forum tried to call one of the birds from my flock (a cull that I gave to a woman who desperately needed a chick to keep her lone hatchling company) a cross breed
They didn't know enough about the breed to make that call, but it really sucked to see my purebred called a crossbreed. He didn't even have any feather color leakage or anything. Not something I would use in my breeding flock, but certainly not a cross.
My silkies aren't looking too rough yet, although my rooster Einstein got caught in the rain the other day and he certainly had feathers matching his namesake's hair after that
Don't show your OH this, but here's one of my little juvenile frizzles. Still in need of a name:Edited by Pyxis - 10/16/15 at 12:23am
