    I have 3 frizzled black cochin hens and a blue silkie roo. What I am wondering is how do I know what the offspring is? I've heard sizzles, frizzled silkies, and what if they are displaying smooth (regular) feathers. I currently have 8 little black and white chicks from them. Some are displaying regular feathers and some are frizzled. The ones that are frizzled are very soft. Some of the chicks are all black and the latest ones are black with white bellys and chins! I have not been able to find any information that really helps me with this. Thank you for any info!!

    This is one of my frizzled babies!


    This is displaying smooth feathers.


    This is one that has a lot more white on him/her!
