Last fall I was given a pair of white frizzle Cochin bantams. Other than thinking they were cool, I had no experience with them. When I researched the gene I found that everyone says to breed a smooth with a frizzle. When I told the lady who gave them to me, she said she got them from a breeder as a breeding pair, but had never done anything with them. She was insistent that there would be no problem breeding them. I have been hesitant and never have had the gutts to hatch any of her eggs since I like to avoid culling as much as possible. My question is this: Is there any way that this could be a breeding pair when they are both frizzled? Like if they both came from smooth parents that carried the frizzle gene. Or did this "breeder" lie to her? I need to know what to do since I have found a smooth white bantam Cochin pair in an upcoming local auction. Should I just buy that pair and split the two pairs so they are both a smooth and a frizzle, or should I even just sell the smooth rooster and keep both hens with the frizzle roo(if the answer to my previous question is that they could be a breeding pair)? Hope to hear from someone with experience soon, thanks!
