    Whaaaat the heck is going on with that chick? I don't think it's a breed thing... Would need more pictures.
    I hear ducks and geese get something called angel wings that looks something like that.

    Heres another picture, not the best. Ill try to get a better one. This chick has been very slow to feather out and its wing feathers came in all sorts of cockeyed.... could it be frizzeled? Supposed to be black marans

    I can see what you mean with these pictures (I hatch chicks for my family) I don't think I have ever seen a chickens wing feathers do that. :/

    to be frizzle with the feathers presenting as curls it would have to have a frizzle gene from both parents. I've seen a lot of Marans chick picks it looks like a Marans chick to me. :idunno maybe try a new thread asking specifically about the curling feathers. I'm afraid I'm not much help.

    I see two cockerels and one pullet in the Marans.... but I am confused by the pics so don't know if I am looking at the same birds.
