So firstly, I am aware that this is a hatchery bird, so before I go any further, I am aware that frizzles are not "pure breeds" and that some people don't care for hatchery birds. That being said, please don't post if all you going to do is bash it as a "hatchery mutt". This came in my 25 bantam Special from Ideal 2 weeks ago. Ideal only offers frizzled cochins in Black, Red and White. This little one is definitely buff. He (99% sure itsa boy) is also clean-legged, so obviously not a cochin.
