Does anyone know wat frizzled chicks look like so I know what I have next spring when I breed frizzles
Had chickens for 8 years now and am now breeding pure frizzles. Proud owner of 27 chickens two Roos and their 25 wives. They live an hours drive away, on my granny's farm. My cousins farm is chicken heaven and they're all free!

There are several kinds of frizzles and colors !

Frizzle-feathered chicks look like any other chick of that breed until they are between 4 days and a week old (when their wing feathers start growing in).   It will become obvious at that time if they have the gene or not.

 

The topmost picture on this blog page is a good example of a newly feathered baby chick with the frizzle gene.
