just wondering if all frizzles have a naked back, and if not what is wrong with mine?
No, frizzle I believe is a gene??!! I have a frizzle cochin, he is short fat and complete covered in white :ribbons: lol
I think if you want something to frizzle they have to have that gene and then still its like a 50% chance that they will frizzle or have smooth feathers.
Does that make ANY sense
How old is your frizzle and is there any way you could post a picture?
3 months old and i wish i could post pic but camera is broke.
it looks sp sad with its little back bare of any feathers, legs, wings and front just covered, but its little back is just as naked as a baby's bottom!
is he or someone eles like another chicken picking at his feathers?
At 12 weeks she should look more like this:
I actually think she was only 10 weeks in this picture.
I'm with Teresa - Is there another chicken picking at your bird?
Those always look like little porcupines to me.
I've had some frizzled birds here that are very slow to finish feathering out. The boys seem to be the worst and some of their little backs stayed 'featherless' for months.
You may have a curly- a double frizzle. If so, better knit the poor little one an outfit to keep her warm in the winter. They don't get many feathers.
