So, we have purebred Pekin Bantam hens and are about to get a frizzle cross rooster. If we breed them, will the chicks have frizzle feathers like the rooster or normal, smooth feathers like the hens?

If the rooster is frizzled, then half the chicke hatched from him and your smooth hens will be frizzled. And you should not keep any frizzled pullets unless you can split them away from the rooster, since you should never breed two frizzled birds together.
