    Well i have my asil rooster in with a bunch of pullets and two frizzle cochin hens. He's doing his job fertilizing the eggs. My question is will it look like an asil and have frizzle feathering??? I doubt its that easy though [​IMG]
    I'm kind of curious what will happen. I'm gonna have about 8 eggs being incubated from them [​IMG]

    frizzle is a dominant autosomal gene.. so 50-50 of all chicks will be frizzled..... unless you're very very very very unlucky to have one with double mf dose....

    Probably in betweem the two, but I am going to guess that it will be closer to the cochin--let me know how accurate I am [​IMG]

    what generally happens is this
    the hen throws genetics to the cockerels
    and the male throws genetics to the females
    any questions email me
