    OK I got the chicken disease! lol I went to the feed store yesterday to get more feed for my 20 2wk old chicks. And I came out with 3 Frizzle Cochin Bantams and 3 Black Sex link pullets! Heres one of the frizzles. 2 out of the 3 have already curling feathers on their wings but the other one doesnt have the curling yet. Could that mean its a roo?

    muscadine, al.
    If two have already started curling there feathers and the last one hasn't it will most likely be a cochin. What happens is you mate a cochin{smooth feather} to a frizzle and what you end up with is about 50% frizzles. I have cochin frizzles but have yet to hatch any. Mine are just stating to lay.

    What you don't want to do is to mate a frizzle with a frizzle because they come out to be a frazzle. There feathers will not be as full.

    Congrats on your new babies, they have the most gentle personalities.

    Hopefully the smooth will be a roo and the frizzles will be hens and you will be in business. [​IMG]
