    Hello all! I just got my first frizzle bantam today (I am SOOOOO excited!! I have always wanted a frizzle!!) but I have NO CLUE what it is. I know for sure it's not a silkie so I am assuming it's a cochin. But let's see what you all have to say. [​IMG]

    Going strictly by what I was told- most frizzles are cochins with the frizzle gene. Different hatcheries sell different breeds with the frizzle gene, but I *think* if you dont specify a particular breed, they usually send a frizzled cochin. Just my experience, not an absolute.

    ETA- just looked at your pic again and I have to say, What a CUTIE!! Oooohhh, I want to pet her!!
