    Ok, s/he is kinda cute, but doesn't look at all like the other 2. The feathers have a constant "windswept" look. The other 2's feathers lay flat along their bodies. I keep trying to wet this little one's feathers down, but they wont stay!!! Is this normal for black cochin bantams?

    Thanks, I was wondering, but never saw a frizzle baby before. S/he is my favorite, as s/he is the friendliest, which means it will probably be a roo! [​IMG]

    3 and a half weeks. The picture doesn't show it well, but it even does that on his/her feet! Almost stands up straight!

    Aw, she's not ugly she's cute. Just a teenage thing, like an Ugly Duckling. Our prettiest girl, Olympia, had a stage like that!
