White silkie mom black frizzle dad?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a white silkie hen and a frizzled black bantam cochin (i think) rooster. Well the cochin is only 3 weeks but im quite certain its a roo. What would their offspring look like?

All of them will have normal feathers. Some could have single combs, or something thats a mix of a walnut and single. They may have extra toes, or not. And I'd expect them the be lightly crested (and bearded if your Silkie has a beard). Some should be frizzled. As far as color, its hard to say. Silkies are typically recessive white, so the colors you'll end up with will depend on what that white is hiding. One thing I can say, they'll be adorable! When I started my Sizzle project, my original cross was a Silkie rooster over a frizzled Cochin hen. The resulting chicks were adorable!
