Description:

If you don't love Frizzles, we're pretty sure there's, like, double the chance you've got major problems. Or something. I mean, come on! Just look at those feathers, all looking like they've been primped by a curling iron, or like an inside out umbrella, or like the first perm you ever got (and cried about)...

Alright, you're perfectly fine by us if you don't like Frizzles, but let us try to sell you on them a bit more.

Cochins as a breed are popular due to their sweet personality and fantastic mothering qualities. But these aren't just any Cochins: they're bantam and frizzled. (Well, 50% of hatchlings will be frizzled... Long story, but you can't breed a frizzled bird to a frizzled bird, or you end up with big problems, so we breed frizzled roosters to smooth-feathered hens, which produces a 50% rate of frizzling in offspring.)

Frizzled Cochins are a good choice if you are concerned about your birds flying over fences, since their unusual feathers make flying any distance difficult. Even better, their quirky look won't fail to get the attention—and maybe incite the jealousy—of your neighbors. Like Silkies, Frizzles are favorites of children and all others who are young at heart.

Cochins do go broody, by the way... They make great mothers, but when they're broody, they don't lay. So just keep that in mind as you make your breed choices.
