    no, There are a lot of diffrent breeds that are frizzle. Frizzle is just a gene that can be introduced into and breed of chicken. The reason you see mostly cochin frizzles is because they are the most common and popular.

    Yep, what Jeff said. Frizzling is a mutation, not a breed. I had a standard Frizzled White Rock, but I sold him in February.
