    Super dependant on the individual. What kind of feathering does the hen have? There's frizzled Sizzles, flat Sizzles, and frizzled+silkied Sizzles. Many Sizzles carry the recessive silkie gene, so there's a good chance around 75% of her offspring will be silkied. If she's a frizzled Sizzle, you will also find that 50% of her offspring will be frizzled. If she is flat, though, her offspring will only be flat or Silkied.

    Keep in mind that she may also just produce flat-feathered chicks and nothing else. Although most Sizzles carry the silkie-feathering gene, not ALL of them do.
