    It should be just a few days. The first feathers (on the tips of the wings) will curl up toward the head. It is pretty obvious from very early on. And once they are fully feathered they are awesome!!!

    You'll know pretty quick.
    Out of 3, 1 looked a little off when they were just days old.
    Sure enough, more and more it showed it was definitely not frizzled.

    It won't take you long. You won't doubt the true frizzles.
