    No, but I sure would like to see one. Showgirls are my favorites! I have seen a frizzled turken, and they are kind of neat.

    My Facebook profile pic is one of my frizzled Showgirls...I started the project last winter. [​IMG] They're incredibly cute. [​IMG] If you want to see the pic, my FB id is Star Bright Farm. [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks! This group are my first generation. I'll be cross breeding back to Silkies for the next generation and the crests should be even better. [​IMG] I will be offering hatching eggs, but not until spring...I want to "correct" them a bit more. When I cross this group back to the Silkies and hatch out a couple of hatches this winter, if everything suits me, then I'll be ready to let them go. [​IMG]

    Oh...and obviously, I'm only raising white "Shizzles". [​IMG]
