    The guy I got these from told me they are red frizzles, they are around 2 weeks old, I'll put pics of two of them up out of the 4 I got.[​IMG][/IMG]

    I don't see any frizzled feathers on it but it could just be the picture. There are pictures of frizzle chicks in the following link.
    The frizzle isn't really a breed but a genetic mutation that can occur in any breed if one parent carries the gene.
    Yours is a feather legged breed, perhaps a brahma or cochin with possibly the frizzle gene.

    Yea, thanks. I have looked at some of the pics that's why I was thinking that these little ones are not frizzles. Their still cute, just not sure what they are.lol

    Not frizzled. Even if a parent is frizzled, only 50% of the chicks will inherit the gene. You've got regular Cochins.

    [​IMG]Thanks! I'm going to be incubating some eggs that I ordered & hopefully I'll get lucky to get a frizzle or two out of them. Will just have to see. I have another little guy that was give to me & it's so much smaller than the rest, but for some reason I can't get the picture to come up. I'll keep trying. I have no idea at all what it is, he just threw it in for free.
    I got it, that's him at top!

    Probably a bantam Cochin.

    Lost, I fear.
    Looks like either a Splash or Mottled bantam Cochin. ;)
