Glenda Heywood Yes the correct term is... Frizzle IE: breed type Cochin, Silkie, Leghorn, seramas, Polish etc. But back in the day in 1970's WEN I WA BREEDING AND RAISING AND SHOWNG FRIZZLED COCHINS. Frizzles were Cochin breed type and (White Color) only. and could only win BEST OF VARIETY AND RESERVE OF VARIETY Frizzle.(BV OR RV). And never went up against the best Cochin of the Show ACCORDING TO THE ABA AND APA POULTRY PARENT CLUBS But to day we have the rules changed. The frizzle breed type of 1 color will be put with the breed type of the same color. Then Judged as BV and RV of that color breed type. Then it goes up against the winner of the color breed type for best of breed. Such as today we see: White Frizzled Cochins going on to be BB or RB of the Cochin class at shows. Also Black Frizzled Cochins winning BB and or RB of Cochin class of show. So it goes with other frizzled breed types. But mostly Cochin Frizzles have come up with the big winners. As Cochin breed type frizzles have excellent body type and good frizzling. with correct face, feet, leg color to win the cochin breed class.
