    I have a smooth feathered sizzle rooster. If I breed him to a frizzled silkie, will have a chance of getting a sizzle? I know if I breed him to a sizzle, I'll have a higher percentage of sizzles but what about a frizzled silkie producing sizzles?
    AND what if I breed a frizzled silkie to a curly feathered Sizzle?
    Thank you

    I want sizzles of all types... I want the curly sizzles of different colors

    I think if you bred the smooth feathered silkie and the frizzled silkie you could get sizzles but it would be a low # being frizzledness is a dominant gene.I wouldn't breed the frizzled silkie with a sizzle because of frizzledness being the dominant gene i would breed sizzle to sizzle to get the best % of sizzles.Curly feathers are also a dominant gene but i'm not completely sure.This is my best guess,i hope it was helpful.[​IMG]
