    okay, so a few weeks ago, my girlfriend bought "2 silkies, 2 sebrights, and 2 frizzles" to start our little bantam flock, we quickly realized, the "frizzles" were something else, and we haven't been able to figure out what they are yet. both chicks had different coloring than the rest of the "frizzles" in there, which is why those got chosen.

    they are the darker (but not the silver sebrights of course) birds in these pictures, the ones that are "red"

    we love them to death, and they are adorable, but we're really curious as to what breed they are, we thought maybe belgian d'uccle, but we're not thinking that so much anymore

    thank you for your help!

    They are the best breed you can get. Cochins are incredibly docile I love them.

    we have absolutely been loving them since we got them, one in particular is a huge sweet heart, the other one doesn't like to be handled as much, but she's still very docile compared to many of our chicks
