Some months back, someone posted a picture of a half smooth feathered bird, half frizzled feathered. There was a name for the condition, which is caused when the egg splits or something like that, but for the life of me I cannot remember what its called. Anyone know what I am talking about?

No idea (so I am interested in the answer, too), but I've seen my share of birds that have about half silkie feathering. Theoretically it should be all or none.

Is this the condition you are referring to?

I dont know how it came about, I found him. His wing feathers are perfectly straight and more like a normal chicken but his neck feathers curl up and his tail feathers have a bit of a curl to him. His body feathers are very soft and sort of flare out but are not necessarily curly.

Alright, I KNOW I am gonna slaughter this but I THINK it is called a chimera...or something close....in reference to some mythological creature? I ma be WAYYYYYYY off...but it is (if I am right) basically like Siamese twins but perfectly joined.
