    At 14 weeks, that frizzle is a pullet. The rest appear to be cochins (pekins) as well.

    That's brilliant. She was £3 as it said cock lol

    Noone wanted here

    Any one breed frizzle if my hen is frizzle and plain cock do you get less frizzle in egg ratio than you would if it was a friz cock
    Or is it still 50/50

    Quote:Actually, breeding frizzle x smooth is the preferred breeding. You will get approximately 50% frizzle 50% smooth. Breeding frizzle x frizzle, you will get around 25% smooth, 50% frizzle, and 25% of what's known as a curly. These birds have a double dose of the frizzle gene. This makes their feathers twist more than in a normal frizzle. They are also quite brittle and break easily. The bird will have virtually no protection from the elements. It's quite an undesirable trait.
