Hello! I just hatched my very first chick from an incubator and I'm pretty sure the dad is a frizzle and the mum is one of my red sexlinks, what would this little chicken look like when it grows up?
The father is a frizzle cochin I'm pretty sure.Congratulations on your little one! What kind of frizzle is the father? Majority of frizzles are Cochins/Pekins.
Frizzle refers to the feather type. When a frizzle is crossed with a smooth feathered bird then half the chicks roughly will be frizzled. You normally cannot tell at hatch, but as the chicks feathers come in they will start to curl.
Your chick will either be white with red leakage or solid white with some black spots. It has a 50-100% chance of being frizzled (depending on whether the father is a frizzle or a frazzle).
