    Was thinking the other night how cool and pretty it would be to see Brahma Frizzles. Someone on here posted a pic of a Brahma x Red Frizzle Cochin and it looked very cool. Was actually thinking of maybe seeing how far I could get with this some day. Wanted to see what kind of reaction the folks at BYC might have over it?

    Lots of time purifying it to the Brahma standard.

    If it was a LF Brahma bred to the standards, yes, it would beautiful. Otherwise, it's another frizzle mutt to me, sorry. I'm a huge Brahma fan, but only for ones that are actually bred to the standard.

    I agree, this would be really pretty! But, I'm also a pure brahma fan like Illia said (it's my favorite breed [​IMG]). Actually I'm a bantie brahma fan. The brahma/frizzle would be a fun try to do though.

    Frizzle is recognised for EVERY breed.

    I have bred and SHOWN Cochin Bantams for many years so I know what a task this would be getting into it. I dont plan to start with BQ or PQ birds, only the best quality possible. And they would be bred to standard. Although I would not attempt the Standard Brahmas, the Brahma Bantams would be a pretty easy thing to frizzle. By 4th generation you should be breeding pure Brahma Frizzles. Guess I will just give it a go and see what comes of it.

    Did you ever make frizzle Brahmas? If so, I'd love to see pics. I want to do frizzle Brahma in LF.
