so i have a pair of silver laced polish. They are pet quality but are very nice birds. I was wondering what I would get if I mixed a black frizzle in this pin? Ik id get 50/50 frizzles but will I get silver laced with more black or what?

It’s hard to tell what you’d get when all the genes responsible for lacing become heterozygous.

Also it depends if the parents of the offspring are homo dominant for frizzle (F/F) or Herero for frizzle (F/f). So homo dominant frizzle to that polish would create 100% frizzles, who would be heterozygous for frizzle (F/f).

But I’d expect incomplete lacing and a darker bird. Honestly it’s not easy to tell.
