    A few months ago we hatched out some bantam cochins with some of them possible being frizzled

    Today we know for sure, that two out of 9 turned out frizzled and that both are boys. [​IMG]

    We also had some luck hatching Silkies in the spring.

    Today, they are all grown up as well.

    What amazing pics! Did you do these yourself? I doubt I could get my girls still long enough to take a decent photo, even if my camera was good enough.

    Beautiful pics! I have a few cochin bantams myself, they're hens, and also frizzled. Cute as a button!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Yeah, I took the pictures .... and believe me, the chickens were easier to take pictures of then my own human kids. ;-)
    I'm not saying it was easy. They were flying into the softboxes, pooping on the backdrop, walking around and such.
    But there were a few second here and there that I was able to snap a few good shots. ;-)

    Quote:All my cochin girls have normal feathers .... they are cute nonetheless. I'm keeping both frizzled boys and hope they will pass the gene to chicks next year. ;-)
