    i have a silkiexcochin chick that's a week old. it's wing feathers are coming in, and they are starting to look suspiciously like frizzled... the only problem is that i thought the egg came from my non frizzled cochin... the chick is black, but i just assumed that it would turn gray like it's mom, but my frizzled cochin is black... [​IMG] once again i cannot figure out which of my cochins are laying! only one does... thought for sure it was the gray, but now with this... ??? LOL. can't get a good pic yet unfortunately, the black on black doesn't show up very well, coming out blurry...

    You should start to see frizzling when the first set of feathers come in. So if your chickie is getting its wing feathers- you should be able to tell if its a frizzle [​IMG]
