    This is my banty splash hen. Just wondering how she stands up to the standard. I think she's pretty and my husband loves her - too bad she likes to bite! She is actually really protective of the other frizzle cochins - hoping that means she will be a good mom this summer. Her name is Sunny because she was so buttery yellow when she was a chick.

    she is very pretty. [​IMG] Do you plan on showing her? It is really hard to grade chickens from a picture.

    I have thought about showing - she is the only bird I have that I would consider it with. I think my millies have too much white or too little. I am going to try to breed some that have to much with those that have to little and see if I come out somewhere in the middle [​IMG]

    Here is my other frizzle. Her name is Cruella because of her one white eyebrow. She is actually very intelligent (on the chicken brain scale), calm and sweet. This one still lives in the garage brooder.

    ETA: All thr frizzles are related - Sunny is just a hatchmate. Stubby is a complete dork to go with his looks and is why I haven't gotten rid of him. He makes me laugh.

    Cruella is extremely cute (probably not show cute though), I love her shape. She looks like a drop (shape) of something and does look like she is big on personality. [​IMG]

    Stubby's curls are hillariouse [​IMG]
