    I have a pretty boy Robin, he's a cross between something and a frizzle. If he breeds with one of my Silkies what are the chances the offspring would come out frizzle? He shows no signs of frizzle but that's who the Mommy was...

    His offspring would not be frizzled, since it only takes one frizzle gene to express frizzle. He doesn't have that gene(if he did he would be frizzled), thus cannot pass that on.

    Pretty little sebright cross roo though,
