Lizzie's Frizzies are definitely my most fun passion project on the farm. These large fowl frizzle easter eggers lay a rainbow of greens, blues, pinks, and oranges. They are sweet, calm birds, and their feathers are incredibly soft.
It's important to note that when purchasing frizzle hatching eggs there is a 50/50 chance of getting frizzled chicks. Breeding two frizzles is not considered to be an ethical breeding practice because it could result it what's referred to as a frazzle, or a bird that has two copies of the frizzle gene instead of one. Frazzles have weak, brittle feathers that break off easily and can bleed if broken off near the base - these birds often end up bald and uncomfortable.
Our frizzle pens are a blue wheaten Ameraucana rooster over frizzle hens, and a frizzle rooster over a combination of blue/green egg laying hens (Ameraucanas and Silverudd's Blues). These chicks can hatch in a wide array of colors including black, shades of blue, red, wheaten, white, and partridge.
