    Thanks. That is so suprising because the white one is very much in charge of the bunch.

    Your birds are absolutely gorgeous! I have 2 red frizzles (2 weeks old) both appear to be red at this time, but only 1 is "frizzly" the other looks like its feathers are much tamer. Were these both "frizzly" from the start???

    Quote:The white one started to show just a few feathers when she first started to get her feathers in but the black one has no real signs of his feathers flipping. These guys are my first two frizzles and I got very lucky and got a boy and a girl. From what I read it is better not to have both parents be visually frizzled. If they are then most of the chicks will come out over frizzled.
