Southern Frill

This breed evidently originated in Belgium apparently from the crossing of the Belgian Canary with Frilled.  Once a flourishing variety, it has now become rather scarce, even in its own country, and is said to have been much weakened by inbreeding.  In addition to being a frilled breed the Southern or Dutch Frill is also a “bird of position”.  It has two positions, one when at rest and the other, the typical show posture, when it draws itself up erect on stiffly braced legs with the head thrust forward, giving the bird the form of a figure seven.
