    I'm pretty sure this girl has a double dose of the frizzle gene.

    If she had both copies, she'd be nearly bald. [​IMG]


    She just has some pretty curly feathers, it looks. Often frizzling quality can differ, and I've even seen a Polish frizzle with feathers so tight they formed literal curly Q's like a ram's horns. I've also seen some frizzles that were more "static" feathering than actual curled feathering.

    I'm quite sure she is a double frizzle, her feathers are really curled. Not broad and curled like most frizzle pictures I've seen.

    Anyway, I'm going to her her another friend or two and a silkie boyfriend C:

    She looks like a guy I used to have, he unfortunately passed away. He was a double dose frizzle, and super sweet
