    These are pics of my 4 day old chick from Meyer hatchery. I ordered cuckoo marans, easter egger and gold laced Wyandotte, I didn't order any frizzles. This chicks wing feathers seem to be curling up and none of my other chics (ever) have done this. Do you think it could be a frizzle? Also, which of the three breeds do you think it's most likely to be?

    It's a cuckoo maran chick and sometimes chick feathers curl a little bit ( my blue orpingtons feathers were a bit curled) in the end only the tip feathers of her wings were curled, I think it's because of stress and lack of nutrition ( because when the chicks are shipped they get stressed and they only have their absorbed yolk to sustain them).

    I agree. It looks like a cuckoo maran chick.

    I agree with Veer67 and chic0chick; that is a Cuckoo Marans.
