    Actually, your first generation crosses will be fairly good. Problem is that they will only be heterozygous (have one copy of the genes) for the necessary traits, and THEIR offspring (the F2s) will be all over the place. I know you are in Canada, and do not have easy access to purchasing birds, but your best bet is to try to get birds that are as many generations along as possible.

    Sizzles should have all silkie traits except feathering; they should have non-silkied, frizzled plumage.

    Check out this link .... https://www.backyardchickens.com/products/sizzle Scroll down for a description of how to make Sizzles.

    I have a White Rock Frizzle and a White Bearded Silkie. Can that combination work to get started or does it have to be a Cochin?
