    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Though I see you've been a member for awhile [​IMG]

    Mountain Peeps gave you some good places to start looking for the info you need. I'm afraid my knowledge and experience of Frizzles is limited to little interaction with my MIL's a few years ago! They are lovely little chickens though.

    I am not certain, but I think because frizzles have issues regulating body temps that bantams are easier to care for than LF, and that is prolly why LF's are hard to find? I don't know if I've actually ever heard of a LF frizzle...

    Anyways, MP has given you good links, so I'll just say good luck!

    I have never raised them either. Definitely follow the links that Mountain Peeps has left for you.

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock!
