    I have a polish frizzle, and I was wondering what would happen if it was bred with a normal polish. Would the chicks be frizzle, or normal? Thanks in advance!

    Half will be frizzled, half will not be. [​IMG] It is dominant.

    Forgot to add - It is dominant, however frizzles carry only one copy of the gene, thus, so will the offspring. A parent with both genes is a "frazzle" and has brittle, often lost feathers.
