    That's kinda what I thought. He was given to me and I really didn't have the heart to turn him down cuz he's so ugly, he's cute.

    If I breed this to a smooth, will the "frizzle" calm down?

    If you breed him to a smooth, all of his babies will be frizzled. And yes, the frizzling will be better (though you'll still get birds with better feather quality than others) [​IMG]
