Breed Details:
Kept mostly for their ornamental value, frizzles actually makes good multi purpose chickens with the cockerels reaching 7 lb in and hens are reliable layers. The frizzling are the result of a dominant autosomal gene, mating frizzle to frizzle is not a good idea as you'll end up with 25% frazzle, a condition caused by the presence of 2 dose of F in one bird. These birds will have highly frizzled brittle feathers which results in porcupine feathered condition (only the shaft of the feather left) by summer. Facts.... since frizzling is caused by a dominant gene, if you don't see the effect on a bird, the bird does not have/ carrying frizzle gene in them (unless by a very small and rare chance it is also homozygous for frizzle modifier mf).
