    Hey y'all I'm new to raising frizzles but eventually I want to start breeding them and I bought these two roosters about seven weeks ago and the feed store I bought them from had no idea what they were so if anyone could give their opinion on what breed they are that would be greatly appreciated! And I have a feeling they are bantams because they haven't gained much weight or size since I bought them and they were about 2 and a half weeks old when I bought them. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I'll be in the barn!
    I'd say maybe frizzles or sizzles (which are silkies crossed with a frizzle)

    Oh I know their frizzles (that's the only thing the seller knew about them) but I don't know what breed of frizzle. I thought about sizzles but I'm still not sure cause the black roo is starting to get brown tipped feathers on his back And they both have feathered legs

    If they are feather legged, they are probably Sizzles or Frizzled Cochins, or some sort of mix.

    I've heard of Cochins with feathered legs but I couldn't find any varieties that had black feathers with brown tips. Could it be a mixed variety Cochin?

    I don't think they're sizzles but frizzled cochins. Sizzles would have some distinguishing silkie features and I see none on these. Also I'm not sure on color, could be black with leakage or maybe incomplete lacing? Either way they are cute and will make cute babies!
