Frizzle Bantam Chicken

Frizzle Bantam Chickens are not strictly a breed but a genetic abnormality that can occur in any Bantam breed but its is most common in Pekin Bantams.  The frizzle appearance is caused by the feathers curving outwards rather than inwards. They are very hard to breed as there is no guarantee that the gene needed for the frizzle look will be passed to the chick, you may get 1 frizzle chick and the rest normal out of each clutch of eggs
