    Hi everyone.
    So I've been wondering what I would get if I crossed a black frizzle cochin bantam rooster with a standard sized black cochin hen?

    Remember to never breed a frizzle to a frizzle or you'll will get a very unhealthily feathered bird called a frazzle. Crossing a smooth and a frizzle will give you 75% frizzled and 25% smooth frizzles with 25% homozygous dominant (frizzled), 50% heterozygous(frizzled), and 25% homozygous recessive (smooth). I'm not sure about bantam/standard crosses, but I do have 2 frizzled.
