I'm joining in on Tuesday's Show & Tail at Angela's West Virginia's Treasures. If you have a cute story and picture of a pet, or any furry (or non-furry) friend, you are welcome to join in! Please check out the rules at her blog, and WELCOME!
Isn't this a dandy looking chicken? It is called a "Frizzle"! A friend of mine has buff colored banty Frizzle hens, and hers are the first I have ever seen, though Frizzles come in just about any color. They are bred for exhibition and originate from Asia.
Here are some Frizzle pullets. They look so downy and soft! If a Frizzle is bred to a Frizzle, 25% of the offspring will be what is known as "curlies" - the feathers are only curled, and very dry and brittle. If a Frizzle is bred to a normal soft-feathered breed, 25% of the offspring will be normal feathered.
