    Im wondering how the genetics would play out with this, would the chicks be frizzled? I wouldn't think so. your Polish is sooooo pretty!

    Quote:I think it depends... because I know that if you have a silkie and breed it to a smooth feathered bird the babies won't be silkied, but if you breed that generation back to the silkie half will be and half will not.

    That's my understanding anyways.. you could google it [​IMG]

    That helps. Sort of hard to understand but genetics is in general! Thanks for your advice.
