    black frizzle x red smooth spring2017r.jpg
    This chick is 1 of 4 of a first spring hatch from a black frizzle Cochin banty roo X 2 red smooth Cochin banty hens. Its siblings so far are all black frizzled and I have several more eggs that should start hatching next week.
    The roo is solid black as was his parents who were from an all black hatchery order for frizzles a few years ago.
    The red hens came from a different hatchery last year for an order of smooths.

    I'm quite curious what color/pattern this one will turn out to be.
    Any thoughts?

    Could be a red, or possibly partridge. Should be interesting to see how it feathers out.

    A partridge version was a thought I had, too. Sure hope it's a pullet.

    I can't wait to see what you get. I will have a red frizzle roo and a smooth black to breed next year.

    Now I have 3 out of 10 who look like this and the rest are black.
