An Indian parrot hatchling is fed by hand in Dimapur on July 24, 2013, after being caught in a forest by a local hunter and offered for sale in the north-eastern Indian state of Nagaland. Despite a ban since 1990-91 on trade in all India bird species, hundreds of parrots are collected and traded annually in India. They are taken from the wild and smuggled within India and to other countries. STRDEL/AFP/Getty Images

Frizzle 
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.
