    What kind (ie, color, frizzle/non)of chicks I would get from a Black Frizzle Roo x Partridge Smooth Hen?
    What about a Mottled Roo with a Frizzle modifier x Black Frizzle Hen?
    (all are cochin)

    mottle is recessive, so F1 would create all carriers, but no mottles (unless of course the non-mottled bird is a carrier).

    Cross the babies and you'll get half mottles, 1/4 carrier and 1/4 not mottled.

    frizzle X smooth = half & half

    mf/mf X Mf/Mf = 100% Mf/mf

    I'm almost positive my hen isn't a mottle carrier.
    What does mf and Mf stand for? Is Mf Frizzle? I'm really new to genetic slang, and I also don't know how the frizzle modifier was passed down. I assume it isn't dominant?
    Does anybody know what Black X Partridge would be? Someone told me Birchen once, but I don't think that's right.
    Thank you!
