I got this Cochin rooster in an order from Ideal. I thought at first it was a frizzle because his first feathers were all scruffy looking. His hackles and saddle feathers are very soft and frizzy, not exactly like a Silkie, but close. He's soft like a baby chick. It may be hard to tell in the photos... I just thought this was interesting. Wonder if he could be mixed, even though he came from a hatchery?
