    I have the opportunity to do some experimental breeding next spring, and I'm wondering how popular this particular variety is among we chicken lovers. I don't see a lot of people owning them, or maybe some of you do, and I'm just not aware of it. Is there a demand for them? I recently got the cutest little black Cochin roo, and I have a lovely little blue NN hen I could cross him with, and a splash NN chick that I think is a pullet that will be old enough by spring. I'd love to see the results!

    I have one! I love it! Its black, naked necked and frizzled. I got it from a BYC member's eggs. I hope to breed my own next spring! I like the VERY unusual! [​IMG]

    I may go ahead and do it then. I got the frizzle and silver birchen roos for free, thinking that I'd breed the silver back to my white frizzle hen and make more frizzles, but I didn't think about mating the little roo back to my NN's until I saw PerfectChicken's avatar. [​IMG] Now that I know she doesn't have one, I'll do my best to see that she does!

    I dont mean to post in your post here lol, but since we were talking about mixing breeds does anyone know what you would get if you mix a frizzled polish, and a silkie? Is that a no no? Any pics?

    Just kidding but seriously that would be cool, I have been looking into getting NN/Frizzles in the spring ((and now Langshans))

    So, let me know when you have some chicks ((or eggs!!)) that need homes in the spring! Because, I doubt my mom would let me get anymore before then... I want my own coop!!

    Quote:Nothing is a "no-no"...you can mix and match any way you want! More than likely you'll get a dark-skinned frizzle Polish with 5 toes on each foot and feathered legs. The frizzle gene is an incomplete dominant, meaning you only need one copy of the gene to make curled feathers, but you need two copies of the silky gene to make silkie feathers. Dark skin, polydactyly (extra toes), and feathered legs are all dominant.

    Blisschick, thanks so much! I love to hear about all about the genes and what is dominant and recessive. I am a Veterinarian major, so its all very interesting. Do you think they would be smaller too? They sould like they would be quite cute? You think?
