    One of my Araucana chickies has quill tips that are curled upward and does not look like any of the others' wings.

    Here's its' curl-tipped wing:

    And this is its white sibling with very straight wing quills:

    If it does turn out to be a frizzle, how soon would I really be able to tell?

    Could be a frizzle. I would think in a week you'll be able to tell better [​IMG]

    Nope I don't have any. But these are from eggs I bought from someone else. [​IMG] Waiting to hear back if they have frizzle in their flock.

    My frizzles tiny wing feathers started as curled out...BUT I have never seen a chick that was not frizzled with curly feathers, no matter what the direction.

    My guess is it's a frizz [​IMG]

    How old are you chicks? I noticed that the second pic the chick has orange legs.......is that normal for a Araucana?? I have amercaunas (sp) and at a week they have the dark greenish grey legs. I am new to the chicken breeds.

    I hope you have a frizzle. I have 3 and they are sooooooo cute.
