    As much as it pains me to do so- I need to thin out my flock of mixed bantam chicks. They came from a backyard mix & to my absolute delight, I ended up with 2 frizzles!! I'm fairly sure I have both a male & a female. I'd like to keep the frizzle genes in my flock, and I've read that breeding them together will give a "porcupine" effect, so I know I've got to let one go... which one, tho? Does it matter?

    I would keep the frizzle rooster. Or whichever one you like best. The roo will spread his love around, and you will get more frizzles than one hen could produce.
