    I think this is a frizzle cochin. I think I know the answer, but am asking anyway.. its 5 weeks old, feathered out super fast, but just started developing the crest. Im leaning towards roo, but nothing besides the crest n wattles says it..

    They are supposed to have beards, but I think being beardless is just a fault for showing, nothing more

    True. It may be a mix too, or it's just me.

    Same here. I had one who looked just like that. And there isn't a hint to frizzled feathers in that picture.

    Thanks soo much everyone.. it could be a mix too...I still get confused on breeds. The one I thought was a d'uccle turned out to be a cochin, this one vice versa...

    Thats why I come here... to learn..

    Thanks again..:)

    this a frizzle cochin, the feathers curl out. any breed can be frizzled, its most common in cochins, seramas, and polish.
