    I put some extra educational books up on Freecycle and a nice young lady with 5 children she is homeschooling stopped by to pick them up. She looked down at my adorable Bantam Frizzle rooster Mo Banty and asked me: How long does it take to curl all those feathers??? Does it hold still? Have you ever burned it?

    [​IMG] Now that one I can understand someone asking. They are very different looking birds. Not like asking if roosters lay eggs too. [​IMG]
     
  3. That's so SWEET! A friend of mine calls Frizzles "The Beauty Shop Birds".

    [​IMG] What did you tell her? I think I might have told her that it's not curling the feathers that takes so long - it's straightening the feathers on all the others! [​IMG]

    I think I would have told her curling irons damage the feathers too much, you have to use rollers. [​IMG]

    I tried to say that they come that way, but got too many strange looks so I said it was the humidity from the sprinkler.

    But wouldn't you think a person's mind should go maybe just ONE MORE click to think, "No, that doesn't make sense..."? And maybe simply ask why the feather's are like that?

    It is a funny picture though, you there with your curling iron and your chicken, meticulously curling all those feathers!
