    This is the only pic I have of mine. You do know not to breed 2 frizzled birds together, right?

    and kelly is right, you shouldn't breed a frizzle x frizzle, you will end up with a bird that might have brittle feathers and end up bald [​IMG]

  6. Hi! This is my favorite Frizz Cochin hen, Chaps:

    Yes, please don't breed Frizz x Frizz.
    The chicks that get a double dose of the F gene can be pathetic. I'd have too look up old pics to show you how bad they can look (hatchery chicks I got in '05) --- but in addition to looking bad, they have internal issues (from an increased metabolism?).

    Chaps is a real beauty. Good to know about the frizz X frizz stuff. I have eggs in the bator now, guess I won't keep a roo.

    But if they have stright feathers is that ok or you don't want to breed that either?

    I was also wondering if it is still possible to get a straight feathered cochin out of a frizz roo and hen. If so could you breed it to a frizzle again?

    Do NOT breed a frizzled roo to a frizzled hen! You will get 25% chicks that have feathering problems, are bald, have metaolic problems, and can die.
