    Do any of you know if these are dominant or recessive traits in chickens?

    Frizzle D or R?

    Silkie furlike feathering D or R? I have one silkie rooster with a bunch of cochins, and was wondering if I could get some with the furry look?

    Naked neck D or R? I have one turken with some cochins, and was curious if he could make more naked necks?

    Most of my hens are cochins or brahamas. I just have each rooster in with several different hens.

    Frizzle is dominant I believe. I don't know about the rest.

    Frizzle is incompletely dominant....meaning that the heterozygote shows an intermediate form.

    Hookless (as in silkies) is recessive.

    Naked Neck; incompletely dominant

    Silkie feathering is recessive I believe.... cross the offspring from that cross back to the silkie and you will get silkie-feathered chicks.

    Quote:Correct, but it is supposed to be heterozygote for best effect. Else overfrizzle...
