I have been breeding silkies with frizzle Cochins and am getting chickens I believe are satins. Silkie traits: blue ears, dark skin and 5 toes but with smooth feathers. My question is , what will I get if I breed satin to satin? Will they be satins or will I get a mix of silkie, frizzle and satin?

The satins have blue ears, dark skin, and 5 toes due to dominance, and the silky feather gene is recessive.

Satin to satin would give offspring a chance of 25% to lose any 1 of those dominant traits. While also allowing a 25% that silkie feathers come back.
