Assorted Frizzle Cochin Bantam [StraightRun]
Frizzles are named after the nature of their feathers that curve outward and forward, giving the appearance of having been dried with a blow dryer. Most of the early frizzled fowls were found in southeastern Asia, the East Indies and Africa, with descriptions of frizzled fowls going back to the 1600's. Black Frizzle Cochin bantam chicks are primarily black with white on the wing tips, chest, abdomen and feet. They have single combs and feathered legs and feet. All the adult plumage is greenish black with each feather having a backward curl. Because the frizzle gene does not breed true, generally one fourth of your chicks will not show the frizzle characteristic. The frizzle characteristic does not show until the chicks begin to mature.
