This is my first post so I am not sure that starting a new thread is the correct thing to do. Please redirect me if there is a more appropriate place to post my question.
I was recently given a young rooster that I was told is a Sizzle (Silkie/Frizzle Cochin cross). We call him Tyrion and I've attached a pic of him below. He has 5 toes, black skin and a small comb. He has a great personality and gets along well with my full size Buff Orp roo and the rest of the flock (through a fence though, I keep him separated just in case he gets fiesty). He seemed a little lonely so I contacted the breeder and subsequently bought a young Partridge Cochin bantam hen. They get along famously and are quite tame and friendly.
My question is if they were to produce fertile eggs, is it safe to assume the offspring would be frizzled too? Is this a safe cross to make? I've been reading online that breeding frizzle birds can cause all kinds of genetic issues if not done correctly.
Thanks in advance for any input. I'm happy to have found BYC and hope to learn lots!
