    Well, I didn't order from Ideal, but that's where my feed store gets them from. The feathers on one of my pullets' back are starting to curl and her feathers aren't coming in very fast. Has anyone ever ended up with a mix breed from Ideal? I have no plans of getting rid of Red. This just makes her more special. I'm just confused as to why I ended up with a curly RIR from Ideal.

    Ideal does have red frizzles which is probably what you got.

    Yeah, I don't think you have a RIR. It is would just be a Frizzle.
    Probably cute as all get out and should have some feathers on it's legs.

    She doesn't have feathered legs. It's just really weird because my feed store doesn't order frizzles. [​IMG]
