    They carry the frizzle gene. Not all chicks come out frizzled, but they carry the frizzle gene.

    Personally, I wouldn't buy them if your looking for a frizzle. These people are strangers and not everyone tells the truth. This is my own personal opinion. It could be a scam to buy the chicks. $20 is pretty steep for a chick.

    I have 7 smooth frizzles right now. If bred with a frizzle, the chicks will be frizzles and smooths.
