    Not to be a kill-joy (and I am no expert)...but I have always been told that you should never breed a frizzle to frizzle for fear of getting what people call a "frazzle". They are seemingly normal chicks, but when their adult feathering comes in, they start going bald. It happens when the chicks get a "double dose" of frizzle genes from the parents, from what I understand. It is better to breed a smooth to a frizzle or at least a frizzle to a smooth from a frizzle background (that is what I do and I get about 60+% frizzles and no baldies). Just wanted to let you know in case you haven't heard of this before. Good luck!
