What on Earth is gonna come out of this egg?

    Okay, so my Cuckoo Silkie is sitting on an egg. It is fertile. It is most likely hers. Here are the possible fathers.
    Most likely: Mottled Cochin carrying the frizzle modifier (probably, so hard to tell.)bantam
    Runner Up: Black Frizzle Cochin (bantam)
    Other Roosters in the area: Dark Brahmas (standard)

    If it's not hers, then it's a Black Frizzle cochin (bantam) crossed with any of the above, probably the mottled cochin.
    This is gonna be a freaky chick. The only reason I'm letting her sit it is I wanna know what kind of mom she'll be. Might as well experiment with a free egg!
