Does anyone have an idea of a Silkie/Cochin mix would look like?

    I'm getting 7 white silkies and two black cochins, I wanted to know what they would look like. Probably fluffy beyond belief. Pics would be awesome. Thanks.

    if your cochins carry the frizzle gene, you could get this:

    Quote:taking pictures of chickens is like taking pics of kids. You have to take 400 of them to get that one gem. And then you show it over and over and over to ANYONE you can corner.

    Don't people call the frizzled ones "Sizzles?"
    the smooth one looks funny.....

    Yup, sizzles. Both are sizzles, but only one carries the frizzle gene. They are actually pretty normal looking: it is all about the pic.

    Here they are during last week's storm
