    always breed frizzle to a smooth feathered bird otherwise you will only get smooth feathered offspring. also if you care about color..blue/blue=25%splash, 25%black, 50%blue....blue/black=50%blue, 50%black

    Always breed a Frizzle x non-Frizzle, otherwise you may end up with frizzled offspring that have frail, delicate feathers that may break off and go bald.

    The color or breed of chicken doesn't really matter if all you want is a frizzled one. [​IMG]

    I agree always frizzle to non frizzle and the breed can be anything. I tend to get about 50% frizzle and the same not frizzled out of any hatch.

    I have never bred Frizzle to anything but smooth or a Silkie and would not want to mess a possibly wonderful bird by doing so. It is best to stay within the guidelines for breeding these birds or you could have a mess.
    Play around with colors to get some cute chicks and Frizzles and then maybe put some of the smooth feathered offspring back to a Frizzle or the dad.
    You will certainly fall in love with all of them!
