    So I'm getting some phoenix birds and really like my frizzled birds to... So was thinking of puting the two together... First off would it even be ok to breed a frizzled bird to a non molting bird??? Not sure of how the non molting would react to the frizzled feathers... Next what type of frizzled bird would be best to breed the phoenix to to keep the best phoenix characteristics? Then how would I breed the frizzled offspring back to pure phoenix to get the longer tails back? About how many generations do you think it would take to get a bird I could call a full phoenix that is frizzled??? Everyones opinions and advice are welcome... Thanks, K [​IMG]
