Hi I am new to all of this but i have 3 frizzle chicks I have had them since they were 4 weeks old and their combs are just starting to grow (on 3 of them anyway) so i amssuming they are roosters. I want to know so i don't get any more attached to them and i have to then get rid of them. I have looked at other forums on this site but there is not much about frizzles. Anyone know for sure if these guys are roosters???would love your opinions. :?

Also no experience with frizzles, but I'd say boys for sure.

Hi thanks for your opinions guys, i did sort of know they were roosters i just didnt want to admit it. We got 4 chicks together at 4 weeks old and now they are about 10-12 weeks old. Out of the other two one is the same as these guys and is definately a girl (no crop) and the other is a white silkie frizzle cross who is just gorgeous but he is looking like a boy too so one out of four was a girl doh!! :shock: :D

Hi There,
I've been breeding & showing pure bred frizzles for 6 years now & yours are definately boys & definately silkie x frizzle. Just wondering why you & a few other people on this site cross your frizzles as pure bred frizzles are getting harder & harder to come by. Below there is some info on breeding & the genetics of frizzles.

The three types of frizzle phenotypes:

The HOMOZYGOUS CURLY FRIZZLE have 2 frizzle genes(FF) which create thin wispy feathers where the feather tips curls back towards the head and the edges of the feather curl in towards the centre. These birds are referred to as "Curlies"

The HETEROZYGOUS Frizzle has 1 Frizzle gene & 1 Straight gene (Ff} and has broad feathers with the tip curled back towards the head.These are exhibition type Frizzles.

The STRAIGHT Frizzles have 2 straight frizzle genes(ff) and have normal feathers and "look" like any other normal bantam.

Possible crosses
PARENTS OFFSPRING

Curly{FF} x Curly {FF} = ALL Curly {FF}

Curly {FF} x Frizzle{Ff}= 1 Curly{FF}:1 Frizzle{Ff}

Curly{FF}x Straight{ff}= All Frizzles {Ff}

Frizzle (Ff} x Frizzle{Ff}= 1 Curly{FF};2 Frizzles {Ff} 1 straight {ff}

Frizzle{Ff}x Straight{ff}= 1 Frizzle{Ff};1 Straight{ff}

Straight{ff} x Straight{ff} = ALL straight{ff}

The different phenotypes can be identified at 1 to 2 weeks after hatching.
Please note that the above table is for pure bred frizzles. Crossing with other breeds MAY breed slightly different.

Thanks......Kerrin

Hi Kerrin, thanks for your reply and info! I am very new to chook owning(we have only had bantams for about 6 months) We bought our so called "frizzles" from a market in our home town of benalla. I loved them so much that i did a fair bit of research on the net about them and after seeing lots of photos I realised that they were not pure frizzles, correct me if i am wrong but pure frizzles are only one color?? I have come across a on this site photo of a frizzle/pekin cross and that looks like what mine are. They all have varying degrees of black in their tail.I have a white silkie frizzle cross and he is gorgeous! I am not happy that they are not pure frizzles but i love them anyway. How long have you been breeding frizzles and I would love to see some pics of your birds. I would like to get into pure breeding them but dont really know where to start and obviously cant trust many local poultry suppliers... Thanks again id love to hear back from you. Cheers

Hi Kai, I meant that frizzles are purely one color whether it be black, white, blue, buff etc. The ones i have are buff with black on their tails cheers, Leah :wink:
