    Frizzled something, probably a cochin or similar. Different breeds can have the frizzled gene.

    Agreed, probably a frizzle Cochin (aka Pekin outside the US) judging by the fluffy bottoms, though could be some other frizzled breed.

    I just checked my mcmurray catalog and they have birds that look just like that called frizzle Cochins. To make it harder she also wants them in bantam size. I'm sure this is going to be cheap and easy.

    It started off two birds. Now that I've found them she wants to start her own flock so at least six. And they are only available straight run so we will need to get more to make up for the Roos.
