From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - View original article
A Frizzle is a type of chicken with feathers that curl outwards, rather than lying flat as in most chickens. A Frizzle is not a separate breed, but a variety within breeds. Though all breeds of chickens may be frizzled; it is most commonly seen in breeds such as the Cochin, Pekin, and Polish. The gene which causes the Frizzles' peculiar feathering is a dominant trait. As a result of its unusual look, Frizzles are primarily used as exhibition birds, and are included in the Standard of Perfection.
