    Same way you get a Buff or Blue anything else. I've seen a couple, and I'm sure you can find a hatchery with some, if not a breeder.
    I saw a frizzled Birchen one time....oh, I wanted her so badly!

    Well Hi,
    I'm new to chickens and I have four frizzle chicks from Ideal. I bought red but they seem to have some black in them, 6weeks old. I expect if I can see black in them now they will have blk in them after their first molt, right? A couple of them are a darker red than the other two. Care to comment? They have hairy feet so that make them cochins right? Should I look for feathering all the way around? Would it be that way at this age? I ask so if I breed them I should have a cochin rooster right? And red of course? I am considering getting the blue if I can. I had a book that had a black and white that was really cool. I've read that if I want another breed say marans frizzles I can do that? Or any other breed in the standard size? Has anyone done this? Anyone got pictures and an explaination of how they got them frizzled?
    Thanks rancher
    by the way how to you pronounce "cochin"? co- chin or co-cheen or co-kin?
