    These babies are from my 2 black cochins, Franny & Franky Fuzz:

    i think there's a chance that Yukon (serama roo) fathered 1 or 2...

    Just wondered what you all thought of them, I really hope they come out as pretty as mom & dad.

    i usually dont like frizzles but they are precious....and i agree with blackbird you probably wont be able to tell until they are a little older

    Thanks everyone [​IMG]

    these guys are from the second hatch of their eggs. the first ones went to a breeder near me (she wanted frizzled seramas) They all had a lot better foot feathering, but so far i am pretty happy with these ones.

    i will have to get some pictures later one, hopefully the 2 frizzles are girls, i really wanna keep them!

    Will the little frizzle's feathers get more curled at the ends (like the big one) as it gets older?[​IMG]

    theyre only about a day apart in age.

    You'll see better, fuller curling after they really moult the first time, the juvenille feathers are kind of thin and flat and often less curled than the final outcome. Those do look like normal frizzles, so best of luck.

    My first two sizzles hatched from my own were a smooth and frizzle - sigh. I need Sizzle/frizzle pullets, not smooths... But I have more not yet with feathers and more hatching so I'm hopeful.

    All this hatching and hoping can get kind of long winded can't it??? wait, hatch, wait for feathers, yup curl, wait for quality of feather... wait, wait, wait.
