    We're first-time chicken keepers. Lost two chicks from the mail order delivery at the beginning of April. We quickly searched around town to replace them (we only had four to start with and wanted to have companions that were all raised together.) We thought we were buying RIR hen chicks from the local feed store. The two replacements have fuzzy feet and are definitely FRIZZLES.

    Is is possible that even with fuzzy feet, they're still RIR's? I'll post pics of them when I can.

    Where can I find more information about frizzles? I'm only finding small bits of info, but no definitive source I can read more about them. I know some consider them a distinct breed, others say it's a variation that can occur in any breed. If I do have RIR Frizzles, can I expect the laying prowess that RIR's are famous for? So many questions, such little information.
