    Okay, this may be a dumb question, but do all frizzles have feathered legs/feet?

    I'm not an expert, but I believe that it depends on the breed of the bird. A frizzled cochin will have feathered legs but a frizzled white rock would not.

    No it depends on the breed. Frizzled cochins will, but frizzled Japanese, Polish, and Rocks (among others) are not feather-footed.

    Thanks Chicken_boy. I want a frizzle, but I don't want the ones with feathered legs/feet. As it is, chickens tend to step in their poo sometimes and get it all over their toes....Yuk! [​IMG] I cannot imagine how messy it'd be if it were a chicken with feathered feet/legs doing this! [​IMG]
