So, I just hatched a clutch a little over a week ago, and have ended up with a handful of Frizzles (Cochin/Silkie cross). I'm paranoid about possible Frazzles though, and was wondering how soon one could tell if a Frizzle is actually a Frazzle. A few of my Silkie hens came from a breeder that was working on Sizzles, and I'm not sure whether they carry the gene or not. There is a Frizzle Silkie/Cochin cockerel in with them, and if I do have any that are Frazzled, I'd much rather euthanize them than mistakenly sell them. *edit* Ok... did some more digging... I think my fears are unfounded since Mr. Cockerel hasn't bred a Frizzled hen... if I'm understanding my genetics properly. My question still stands though. I'd like to know if there is a general guideline to tell if a chick is a Frazzle or not.
