    Welcome to the BYC flock. Glad you joined us. :ya The important thing to remember about breeding Frizzles, is NOT to breed them to each other. Frizzle to frizzle causes brittle feathers that break easily or birds with barely any feathers.

    It's best to breed frizzle to non- frizzle, you still can wind up with frizzle and plain chicks.
