    My silkie hen and my frizzle cochin rooster made a baby. What are all the possibilities of what it could end up being when it feathers out?

    It's so cute!!! I'm not an expert, but I can definately tell you it is going to be fluffy.

    I think they call those Sizzles and they are very cute - and that is a real cutie.

    50% chance of frizzled feathering; 0% chance of silkie feathering. Likely has a walnut comb; doesn't look to have inherited dark skin (although it should have).

    Quote:It also doesnt have 5 toes.... Has to have come from my silkie though, as it came from her egg. [​IMG]

    i've been breeding a red frizzle bantam cochin roo to my black silkie hen. here are the babies i've been getting

    yellow skin 4 toes red chipmuck in color bearded
    yellow skin 5 toes red chipmunk in color bearded
    dark skin 4 toes black bearded
    dark skin 5 toes black bearded

    yellow skin to black skin is 50/50
    frizzled to regular feathers 50/50
    walcomb combs 100%

    so far i have hatched 30 or so.

    the frizzle usually starts to show at 5 days and really show bt 7-8 days so shouldn't be that long of a wait

    I just found two more chicks in the coop.. But these look like they are from my half silkie-half blue Andalusian bantam hen, still frizzle roo though. They have a strange single comb that has a double single at the back. Black skin, but only 4 toes. One is black, the other is black and brown.

    The picture is of the first one from two days ago that is white, and then the black one is running away, and the brown and black one is looking at the camera. The black one is starting to get its wing feathers, but the white one still is not even at all. And I am pretty sure the brown and black one is a recent hatch, as it is not all fluffed yet.

    The parents: A white Silkie hen, a Blue Andalusian Silkie mix hen, and a bantam cochin frizzle rooster.
