    Don't be sorry! [​IMG] I think it's a feather type where the feathers look like they're being blown with a hairdryer or something. I don't really know a whole lot about them either. Wish I had more information for you!

    Frizzle is a feather type. It can spontaneously happen in any breed. And it can be selectively bred for as well. You have a silkie/cochin cross there with frizzled feathers.
