    I don't have any frizzles. Are they a breed? I've read that there is a recessive gene to reduce the frizzling so I'm assuming a breed can have all double frizzles if they have that as well [​IMG]

    This last one may require a bit of an explanation. This is Annie_Belle the house rooster trying on her first diaper. It was a bit large so I adjusted the elastic length, but in the mean time, after I rocked it gently back and forth, she zonked out on me.

    Quote:When two show frizzles are mated 25% will be smooth feathered 50% frizzled and 25% will be extremely frizzled

    Extremely frizzled birds arethe birds which have recieved a double dose of the frizzled gene making their feathers extremely narrow and curled. Making them sometimes brittle

    Smooth Feathered frizzles while having no curl are inportant part to a breeding pen, when feather quality deterioates cross a smooth feathered back in, it will help with the feather quality [​IMG]


    Here is a really good chart

    FF Ff ff

    FF 100% FF 50% FF 50% Ff 100% Ff

    Ff 50% FF 50%Ff 25% FF 50% Ff 25% ff 50% Ff 50% ff

    ff 100% Ff 50% Ff 50% ff 100% ff

    Key -
    FF- Extremely Frizzle
    Ff - Frizzle
    ff - Smooth Feathered

    That is not true. I have bred and raised Cochin Bantam Frizzles for several years and have never had a frazzled or "curlie" produced from breeding a smooth feathered frizzle to a frizzled bird. Two dominant frizzling genes have to occure before a "curlie" or frazzled bird is produced. If there is a smooth bird in the breeding there wont be any birds like this.
