The little chicks are 3 weeks old now, and we have made an adorable discovery!
our little white Bantam Cochin has curly feathers!!!
here she is at 1 day old:
and at 2 weeks:
It is one of the cutest things I have ever seen!
She is sooooo soft and her feathers are all curly!
I started reading about it online because I have never seen
or heard of anything like this.
Here is what I found:
Frizzle (chicken) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Frizzle is a type of chicken with feathers that curl outwards,
rather than laying flat as in most chickens.
While many consider the Frizzle to be an entirely separate breed, chickens from all breeds may have a frizzled appearance.
How cool is that?!?!
