I purchased 4 birds. I was told they suspected all 4 to be female but I could exchange if they ended up male. Well sadly I know the white frizzle is male and I suspect the red frizzle is male. They’re all of the sudden constantly jumping on each other and they’re only 10 weeks. One of the smooths sometimes gets into it but I don’t see the comb and wattles really yet so hoping female. Anyway, if you were going to keep only one frizzle which would you keep. I sometimes sell barnyard mix eggs. (Usually just mixed Silkie colors, but maybe I can add these in?) I also have a beautiful buff Silkie with no boyfriend. These are my pets and sadly I am attached to these boys already, but I have 6 boys on my half acre just east of NYC so... 🤦🏼‍♀️ If you were going to keep one frizzle which would it be? The white one is larger but also seems to mostly be the aggressor.

Well if the white and red are both male (white is, red probably is), i think the red would be better with the buff silkie color
That’s what I was thinking but... would I end up with all 4 feather types if bred or just 2. When I breed my frizzled Satin to a Silkie I get all 4. Smooth, Silkie, frizzled Silkie and frizzled Satin.
I wonder what would happen if I crossed the red frizzle with those smooths in terms of color? I honestly may not breed them at all, but just going through my options

I’m think I’m going to be strong and give them both back. I paid $30 each for pullets. I want to keep them but, with my small piece of property I’m afraid it wouldn’t be smart.
