Is a Frizzle able to be shown? And if so what are the standards?
Frizzle is a type of feathering, not a breed. I have frizzle cochins & EEs for example. I don't see why you couldn't show them-as long as they were to their individual breed standard. EEs don't have a standard since they are mixed.
Quote:Beautiful, but we don't have those...
Quote:Depends on the breed. Frizzle cochins and polish are showable
Frizzles are shown as a variety of the their breed. Many different breeds have a Frizzled variety, Cochins are the most recognized but there are Frizzled Japanese, Rocks and Polish. The frizzle gene can be introduced in any breed.
APA and ABA recognise frizzle for every breed. In Britain(?) frizzle is a specific breed.
UK, Australia and NZ actually...
Quote:Never knew that- I followed the link and was kind of confused. I was expecting pics of birds with feathered legs.
So- is this the breed that they used to introduce the frizzle gene to other breeds?
The frizzle is not a breed. Although the frizzle gene comes forth in many breeds. Frizzles are showable depending on the standard of the breed they belong to. You would find that if you are from the U.S.A. in the APA book of standards or ABA book of standards.
