    Someone said I had some Silver Penciled Cochin Bantams. I am guessing it is this pair they were talking about. What do you think?

    My little rooster! Cuthbert![​IMG]
    He still looks like a baby compared to most of the others. But he is one of the biggest.[​IMG]
    Ok, what is going on with these wing feathers, lol. He has not grown in many feathers yet and the one's he has are all over the place.[​IMG]
    Seems like about half are sticking out. He did not mind posing for pictures at all.
    Are they Silver Penciled Cochin Bantams? And is Cuthbert a Frizzle?
    Thanks for all of your help.

    Yes! He's a wonderful frizzle! The curly feathers will gradually fill in and he should be frizzled all over in another 6-8 weeks. Lovely!

    I hatched out 3 frizzle crosses...2 were not frizzle and one was. The first place I noticed the frizzling was the wings [​IMG]

    This is my frizzle bantam cochin roo, he's been a sweety till now....he's a little brat who thinks he's big and tough and floggs me. His frizzle baby was also a roo so I sold him. I have 4 naken neck eggs under a bantam cochin hen now and if they are fertile they are this big guys babies. I'm hoping one hatches frizzle cause Batman is close to being a goner if he gets me again

    Very Pretty. Cuthbert was going for my face everyday when I would be looking at them in the cage or chicken tractor. So I wondered if he would do that to my feet, so I knew what to expect from him as he go older. So I took him in my office, closed the door, sat him on a phone book by himself and his attitude changed. He just sat there, quiet, did not do anything. I don't think he was scared. I sat him on my desk for awhile too. Well, it seemed to have worked, he does not jump at me anymore. I think it was a pecking order thing, and when it was just him and me, he figured out I was above him in the pecking order, lol.

    he is so cute ~: ^ ) I would vote no on the frizzle. I own a couple (frizzles) along with a sizzle (silkie/frizzle mix) but I'm not a breeder nor a pro... just an opinion. He's a cutie what ever he turns out to be.
