    Do Frizzles come in standard sizes? I currently have a flock of 10 hens (Buff Orps, Black Australorps and EE's) and a Brahma cross roo. I would love to add a Frizzle or two to the flock but would worry about adding a bantam to the flock of bigger birds. Also, With my coop and run size I can really only have 4 - 5 more birds so I don't want to order from one of the hatcheries. Ideally I would like to wait until one of my hens goes broody and then get some eggs from someone to stick under her. Does anyone out there breed frizzles?

    I've seen standard size frizzle Polish, but I wouldn't know where to get them. Maybe watch on eggbid for some?

    Misfit, frizzles come in all breeds as frizzle isnt a breed itself. I personally have only owned 3 Standard Frizzles and found them at random without looking at auctions, swaps, sales, and shows. Frizzle Rock and Polish are the most popular Standard Frizzle breeds but they do come in any breed possible. The ones I owned were Standard Cochins and one Orpington and that was almost 8 years ago and have yet to find any since then. If I can help you feel free to ask me any question.

    Quote:Are all your chickens Frizzles, or do you have regulars too? I have heard to never breed a Frizzle to a Frizzle, because you will get what is called curlies, where the feathers are over curled and the skin is too dry. I have Frizzles, and I'm going to keep all Frizzle hens, and have a regular feathered rooster.
