    i bought these from a friend down here. They are like a frizzle but are huge! The black he weights about 7 pounds and is still young and growing. He hasn't even started crowing yet. The other is about 5 pounds. What are they? [​IMG]

    They look like mixed breeds to me. The black one is probably a Polish mix, and the other bird may be a gamebird mix.

    They are definitely mixed breeds.

    The frizzle gene can be bred into any bird, so any size is possible. Agree those are mixed breed birds.
