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."
