This is our month old Frizzle. I am not sure of sex... I named it Popcorn today.
The wife and I will keep it no matter which it is. ;)

Thanks good question soccerchicken12 so I looked it up... finally. Here is what I found

A Frizzle is a type of chicken with feathers that curl outwards, rather than lying flat as in most chickens. While many consider the Frizzle to be an entirely separate breed, it is not. Chickens from all breeds may have a frizzled appearance. It is a variety within breeds, some with clean legs and others with feathering on the legs.[1] Genetically, the frizzled gene is a dominant trait.[1] As a result of its unusual look, Frizzles are primarily exhibition birds, and are included in the Standard of Perfection.
