    I have a frizzled cockerel. If he covers a "regular" hen, is there a chance off frizzled feathers?

    Similar question about a naked neck cochin (bantam, if it matters) hen. Will she produce NN babies if not bred to a NN male?

    If he is a frizzle and not a curly, when bred to a smooth hen, you will get 50% frizzled, 50% smooth.

    If the NN is homozygous and bred to a normal male, you will get 100% heterozygous NN. If she is heterozygous for NN, you will get 50% NN, 50% normal.
