    Oh man. So I was browsing some chicken pages today (ha, I feel like a nerd) and saw a few pictures of the CUTEST little fluffs! So I started looking into it and realized I am in LOVE with Frizzle breeds! Haha maybe next spring? I suppose it's getting too late in the year for chicks now [​IMG] Anyone out there have frizzles they want to tell me about? [​IMG] Do they make for good chickens? Or are they a pain to have?

    I have a couple frizzled Polish chicks, and a frizzled Cochin/Serama hen. They're the same as any other chicken, other than they can't fly high at all. This is actually somewhat helpful, as I have a few that like to clear the fence. Since mine are bantams I am going to give them a little extra heat in the winter.

    I'm not sure what state you are in, but I would say you still have enough time to get them feathered out before fall if you want.

    We have "cookie" a black mottled frizzle cochin! If there is one bird I could handle packing around its her. The feathers are beyond soft and her personality is docile like most cochins. We show her quite often and is a breeze on prepping for a show...She was Champion Bantam Hen at our County Fair this summer! Cant go wrong with Frizzle Cochins!

    My little frizzle is the sweetest chicken I have out of 32!

    I agree you could still get some this year ~ I think that there are some hatching eggs in the auction section right now! [​IMG]

    AHH! I WANT ONE SO BAD. Haha, Idk, honestly I want one, but that's it! Just one [​IMG] And I could probably get one feathered out by fall, but I have to go back to college August 28th [​IMG] [​IMG]:hit And I would feel terrible leaving a younger chick with my parents until break. They're already griping enough about having to go down and fill water buckets/ throw out some scratch because these chickens are "my endeavor"... I wonder if I could keep a chicken in my room... hmm... [​IMG] I doubt my sorority would appreciate that! Although I did try to convince our president having a Sigma Alpha Iota Chicken Coop would be a GREAT fundraiser... But she didn't go for it. [​IMG] I wonder if I got a chick that was a bit older though? Hmm... To the auction forum!!

    There ARE frizzled Seramas, and they ARE the smallest breed, and many DO keep them inside.... Just, FYI.

    (beware, I'm a chicken enabler)

    Haha well I had an illegal toad and gerbil in my room last year... I wonder how noisy a hen would be... [​IMG] I could just imagine my housemates "You heard clucking? It's my tv! I left it on RFDTV all day! What? You found an egg in the bathroom? Oh! I was just making breakfast and had to pee. Must have left it in there!" [​IMG]
