    Hey hey everyone! I just got myself three little chickies. The hatchery guy said they are "brown frizzle cochin bantams" but when I look that up online I don't get a whole lot on the entire names. Anyone know anything about these little critters? I have about one month to construct a coop, I know the basics of what I need, but does anyone know of anything "the books don't tell you"??? I appreciate any bit of help, and thanks!!!

    wow I love frizzles. They are so cute. The cochin frizzle has feathered feet so if you get snow it tends to pack on the feathers around the feet and can get frost bitten. They normal do good in the cold otherwise. feather site is good and also henderson's chicken chart http://www.ithaca.edu/staff/jhenderson/chooks/chooks.html

    It
    has cochins on there. If you mix a cochin frizzle with a silkie it is called a sizzle. hope it helps [​IMG]
