    I have a late batch of chicks and a few of them look like they might be
    Frizzles but I'm not familiar w hatching this type of chick. So I was
    hopeing that someone could give me an idea they are about 7-10 days
    old? Thanks I hope this is not a repeat question and if so if someone
    Could lead me to the threads it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    You can tell pretty well once the feathers start growing out of the down - the frizzles have feathers that curl back instead of laying flat.
