    Can anyone give me some advice on getting an orpington frizzle? I currently have all orps of different colors and I would like to introduce frizzle into a few lines. Any advice would be appreciated. I have never worked with the frizzles before and would love to get an orpington frizzle. I think that bird would look like it was about 20 lbs or so. [​IMG]

    I did that last year, we put frizzle into orpington and rock crosses...

    The quickest way will be to find the largest clean legged, single combed, no crest rooster (like the one in british standard for frizzle) and breed it with 4-5 hens.

    This is phoenix, the boy we used...
