    My frizzles are hatching today, so far 4 out of 10 are out of the eggs. I have experience with Silkie chickens only. How soon can you tell if the chick will be frizzled or have straight feathers?

    I am so egg-sited!!!! They are beautiful.

    Also, how do I get the animated chicken smilies I have been seeing???

    Thanks!

    Congrats! [​IMG] This is my first time having a frizzle chick too! [​IMG] When the little flight feathers start coming in, you'll notice them starting to curl up on the edges. So not long after hatching. Patience! [​IMG]


    As for the smilies, if you're talking about ones like this [​IMG]
    Then they are to the right of the text box when posting. It'll say show or hide smilies. Show them and you'll have a lot to choose from!

    Thank you![​IMG]

    I am starting to get worried about the remaining 6 eggs. They haven't pipped yet. [​IMG] All 10 were set at the same time. I guess I could try candling them later tonight if nothing happens til then.
