    I recently got several baby chicks from a hatching at the elementary school I teach at. They are various breeds donated by the owner of a local feed store. I have some neat chicks from them including an Ayam cemani and lavender Orpington. I was thinking this was a maran BC of the feathers on the legs, but it looks like these feathers are starting to frizzle. What do you think? And if it is a frazzle when would I be able to tell?

    Apparently my phone is having issues. I can't get them to show on my end anymore either. I guess I'll have another photo shoot and add new pics tomorrow.

    What a pleasant surprise! I have been wanting another frizzle since I lost mine. Would I be able to tell if it was frazzled?

    If it's from a hatchery it probably won't be frazzled, they would lose customers fast if some people got frazzles. I love frizzles! Good luck with yours!:)
