    I have two black ones like this

    One red one. Do they call that a frizzle?

    This muti colored one may be the prettiest bird I have.
    plus the other black one is that a frizzle as well. That one is getting better but he was really picked on when we first got him.

    I am trying to select on rooster from the bunch to keep with my five hens. Would any of these make a good dual purpose daddy? They are all smaller breeds than the hens I have. I need to know if we decide to raise chicks, if I would be better off getting a larger breed rooster.
