I got this 4 week old chick that was said to be pure frizzle cochin bantam but I believe it is actually a f1 sizzle. I was also told it was a pullet but I now believe it's a cockeral. When he is older I would like to cross him to my f1 silkie/EE chicks. My question is if I crossed him with the silkie/EE would he possibly create frizzled chicks or silkied chicks? I suck with genetics (I'm learning though!) But if I am correct about the cockeral being a f1 sizzle he could have H/h (silkie) genes right? Which would mean if I crossed him to the silkie/EE chicks which should also have H/h genes I would get some chicks that are h/h (silkie feathered)??? Maybe I'm wrong and sound stupid but hey I'm here to learn. 😂 if I did cross him with the silkie/EE chicks (I'll probably cross him with a few of them.) what would I get? Silkie feathers? Frizzles? Both? 🐔🐓🐣 last 2 pics are 2 of the silkie/EE crosses.

It technically isn't a sizzle, lacking silkie feathers, bu if it is half silkie (which it most likely is) it carries the silkie feather gene, and so do your silkie/EE crosses, so happy breeding!

if I am correct about the cockeral being a f1 sizzle he could have H/h (silkie) genes right?
Yes. If he has normal feathers, but has a silkie parent, he would have H/h genes.

Which would mean if I crossed him to the silkie/EE chicks which should also have H/h genes I would get some chicks that are h/h (silkie feathered)???
Yes.
A cross of H/h rooster with H/h hen should give about one quarter HH chicks, one quarter hh chicks (silkie feathers), and half Hh chicks (carry the silkie feather trait but do not show it.)

if I did cross him with the silkie/EE chicks (I'll probably cross him with a few of them.) what would I get? Silkie feathers?
Silkie feathers probably in 1/4 of the chicks, if each parent has H/h genes.

Frizzles?
Yes, probably half his chicks would be frizzled.

Yes, probably about 1/8 of the chicks.
(1/4 with silkie feathers, and half of them being frizzled.)

I suck with genetics (I'm learning though!)
I think you get every bit right about the genetics. So even if you are finding it hard work to figure out, you are getting it :thumbsup

Thank you so much! Glad I'm on the right track!
