Crossing to get a Frizzle Cochin

Hi everyone.
So I've been wondering what I would get if I crossed a black frizzle cochin bantam rooster with a standard sized black cochin hen?

Remember to never breed a frizzle to a frizzle or you'll will get a very unhealthily feathered bird called a frazzle.  Crossing a smooth and a frizzle will give you 75% frizzled and 25% smooth frizzles with 25% homozygous dominant (frizzled), 50% heterozygous(frizzled), and 25% homozygous recessive (smooth).  I'm not sure about bantam/standard crosses, but I do have 2 frizzled. 

1 dad, 1 mom, 3 sisters, a whole bunch of chickens, 13 runner ducks, 2 lab/pyrenees/anatolian mixes, 1 pyrenees rescue, a norwich terrier and 2 geckos

Yep, I would purchase some smooth and some more frizzles
