Questions about Frizzles

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by AZGardenFarmer, Jun 3, 2012.

  1. So my Frizzles are a bit older. Haven't had chickens in awhile and brushing up.

    At what age, can Frizzles be sexes?

    Can the sex be figured out by the size of the comb?

    Can the sex be figured out by the way the feathers lay?

    My old chickens, the hens had feathers that laid more flat than the boys.
    My pheasants, the comb was different in size.
    My quail, the colors in the feathers gave the boys away.

    The Frizzles that I got, 2 have upturned feathers with different browns. The other 2, the feathers lay flat and are muted taupe brown in color.
    My 5th chick, isn't a Frizzles so I'm still trying to figure out what he is.

    I'll take some pics later. Not sure how to post thembut I'll try.

    Any help on this would be great.
