How soon can you tell if they're frizzles?

We had 10 babies hatch Friday. Sunday the wing feathers on 3-4 of them look like they might be frizzles as the ends are curling slightly. The rest seem straight. I only have one frizzle hen, but she has 3 red sisters with smooth feathers. Is frizzle recessive or dominant?

Incidentally, the babies we hatched seem much calmer and friendly than the hatchery babies we got last year. I think the shipping must have something to do with it. These seem much healthier and perky.

At 7 to 10 days the wings will turn outward, As the rest of the feathers come in you may not notice until the ones on the shoulders come in they will for sure be facing the chicks head.
