Frizzled

Meet the Frizzle chicken from Asia, The Philippines, and Java. And it does look like this bird has had a bit too much java, doesn't it? I read somewhere that it looks like he took a shower and stuck his beak in a light socket. His feathers look like that because they curl instead of laying flat, and he is deemed to be a rather rare breed. He was nearly extinct at one time. The poor frizzle has the misfortune of not only looking comical, but being flightless. His wings just won't make it, so he is doomed to strut around looking frazzled all his life. It must be wearisome.


"Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."
Isaiah 40:30,31

The Frizzle is just too cute but he does look like he could use a little styling gel or something. I haven't heard of this kind of chicken before.

When you get your Galaxy let me know how you like it. I can't make up my mind so it will be awhile before I get one.

Yep, Annabel Lee!

I had not seen both grandmas for almost 10 years, so when I saw them with permed hair, I couldn't get used to it. Both of them must have made a pact, forget the old feudal custom, and permed their hair at about the same time.

When i asked her why, I cried and said I like her with her bun, she said I won't understand. she had to groom her long hair every evening and morning. In the end, I think she was thinning, so she took the plunge, and cut the hair she had for 70 plus years. All the freedom!!!

You chicken like my grandmas had a perm? LOL

Oh I think I can relate (ha ha).
I had a big white hen and a rooster once. Sadly, the Rotti I had decided she couldn't wait for chicken?

In the photo it looks like the wind is constantly blowing from the backside the way the feathers are curled.

Those are so funny looking. Talk about a bad hair day! They look like they stuck their feet in a light socket! :) They are kind of cute though.

Made me laugh! Love his feathers:)

Sharon said...

Till I read about it, I thought he had been in a fight... and lost. Interesting that they breed these.

Now that is the worst of a bad hair day.

Sandra said...

well he sure will not win in beauty contests, but he is interesting to look at. wonder if they eat them or eat the eggs. also is the header head the frizzle chicken or another one.

Jeanne said...

Somebody certainly ruffled his feathers all right!

SweetMarie said...

How funny to look at!

One of my favorite Scripture passages, and I love the frizzled chicken and your photos of this rare bird! The red of his comb is brilliant and even the white of his fluffy white feathers shows uo wonderfully. Good job on introducing us to Mr.Frizzle through facts and photos and ending with an inspiring truth for the day!

It does look like someone had tried to dry him with a hair-dryer... ;)

Shanda said...

God definitely has a sense of humor on that one!

Fred Alton said...

Karin said...

Frizzled, frazzled, deep fried rooster! Would the Colonel's herbs and spices make him taste better than he looks? - Just trying to be funny - probably not succeeding, lol!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

He is so cute, even if he is frazzled!
