Are these future frizzles?

    I can't seem to tell if the feathers are curling or not. These are my first silkie/ possible frizzle chicks. They are a barnyard mix so traits are really undetermined. They do all have feathered legs/ feet. The dark ones in the background are puffy cheeked. The dark one with the white face came from a blue egg.

    The one on the left definitely appears to have some degree of frizzle. On the right possibly but hard to tell.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure when the feather curl surfaces. These are about 3 weeks old.

    They look smooth to me. You can see the curling as soon as the new wing feathers come in on baby chicks. Its pretty obvious right from the get go.
    The bird on the right just looks like its feathers haven't laid down yet. Once they grow out a little more, they'll smooth over.
