    Hi all--wanted to see what you think of my frizzles I hatched from Dipsey's eggs. I think they are cuties! I also wonder what's up with the one in the first picture who seems like he/she will never get any real feathers!! Any ideas on sexes??


    Here's 2 pics of Bluebell


    2 pics of Rusty--the pic doesn't do Rusty justice--he/she blends in with pine shavings!


    This is Rusty and Blackie

    I am leaning towards all roos except maybe Blackie and Bluebell.
    What do you think?

    Thanks for looking!

    I have to admit, Rusty has a special place in my heart! He/she's a keeper no matter what! [​IMG]

    They all hatched on Sept. 19th. They'll be 4 weeks old tomorrow. They are still inside in a big box with their light. I am now leaving it off during the day--or at least I was since it has been unusually warm here. (in the upper 70s-low 80s).

    Today it has been colder and is expected to stay that way through the weekend. We don't have a furnace and just use a wood stove but we won't start it up for a while yet. I'll be leaving them in with the light for a while longer.

    I don't know why that little fellow is running around all nekid! He/she seems fine, just doesn't seen to want to grow any feathers! DBF is wanting me to crochet a little sweater!

    oohhh! so cute nice and curly!! did you see my new babies? Iposted pictures of them too. I have seen a frizzle that was the offspring of a cross between two frizzles. It was almost completely naked!! It had maybe 10 feathers on it's whole body. it looked like a living roasted chicken!! It was so ugly it was cute.
    I hope my babies turn out as curly as yours!!
