Frizzle Chick: How to Tell?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

How soon can you tell if a chick has Frizzle?  And what do the first wing feathers look like?

There's a random chick in the bin who's wing feathers almost look like they're twisted, kind of like my Silkie's did when it first got feathers.  Its about a week and and a half old, Buff color, feather legged, white skin.

The frizzle I picked up started feathering out wing feathers that curled up at the ends.  I thought it was angel wing because I didn't realize it was a frizzle.

See pictures in a post I made on this thread:

Edited again to say, the chick in that picture is a Roo!  smile  I still have him.

u start to see it within the first week, usually about 3 days or so. as soon as they get long enough they curl backwards. with frizzles u can have smooth frizzle also, not all will frizzle look but will still be spit for it to carry the gene to the next generation.

Hi! 
I can see it at about 3 days. 
Look at the very wing-tips and you should be able to see a bit of a curl to the new feather coming in.
I love frizzles smile
