Sparky Weight: 11.9oz Hatched: July 22, 2011 Sparky has two copies of the frizzled gene which makes him a Curly. His feathers are slow to come in but are getting thicker all the time. They are very soft thanks to the silkied gene from his mother, who is a frizzled silkied serama. Being a Curly, he will definitely need additional heat in the wintertime. Mated to a smooth, black hen, all of his offspring will be frizzled and at least half will be cuckoo. He also carries the recessive silkied gene which means he will produce silkied cuckoo offspring when mated to a black silkied hen.
