Thumbalina - the Frazzeled Frilzzel

By pHENtHOUSE, May 28, 2013 | Updated: May 28, 2013 | | |
    Thumbalina was a surprise to us. All three little Batoms looked the same and then this little frizzle emerged. She/He (we still are not sure how to tell) was so much smaller in the big ol' water trough with all the other chicken and duck babies. They seemed to grow but she just stayed so small. I know your not suppose to have favorites - but she's my favorite and she's such a love. She tolerates all the kids and being shown and all the practice of getting ready to show. People would ask if there was something wrong with her because her feathers didn't look right. We loved the Frizzle look so much we added a little black Frizzle named Tinkerbell. Tink is still under the heat lamp and waiting to grow before being added to the flock.

    (sorry about the L in the frizzel title - it won't let me fix it)

    Frizzles are some of the cutest chickens I've ever seen. I know somebody that had a frizzle rooster that only had one leg and his name was Ladyguyguy
