We recently hatched out 6 Cochin Bantams. They are only 6 weeks old at the moment, and are in with the rest of our flock, which consists of the description in my signature. It appears that I have at least two cockerels in the group, one smooth and one frizzled. If the group stays as it is, I will be looking to eliminate one of the males as I am not yet willing to rework our facilities to accommodate 2 roosters and breeding pens. Perhaps after we build a new house. My first thought is to keep the smooth cockerel because if he fertilizes eggs from the three frizzled pullets, they have a good shot at being frizzles. The frizzled cockerel, on the other hand, would give me the chance at frazzles, which won't work. But I am also a little curious to see what would happen if I allowed the frizzle cockerel to stay around and fertilize some eggs from the BR or RIR. Is this even a viable scenario? I know that bantams and standards can breed, but genetically, is it plausible? It would make one heck of a real-life demonstration for my 8th grade Science unit on Genetics, but without the experience in chicken breeding, I am at odds on what to do here. (Not to mention, I'd just love to see what a RIR frizzle would look like if it would happen.) I can already see this turning into a whole other addiction/obsession. We were "just" going to have 6 laying hens for eggs and a good learning experience for our daughter...no hatching of eggs, no additions, nothing like that...we are now up to a flock of 26. At least I could possibly sell some of the resulting chicks? Thoughts on who to keep or how to approach this?
