    We recently hatched these guys out about 2 weeks ago I think? There's one that for the past several days that just look different from the rest in it's group of 9 to me, but I keep wondering if it's just me that notices it.

    Could this be a frizzle?
    Or are they just more likely to be temporary feathers that are common in quail.

    Here's him and one of his quail-mates making the same pose:

    I hadn't either, but looking around it sounds like they do exists, but it's more of something that happens on rare occasion in coturnix and button quail's.
    But now I've come across this thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/91005/frizzled-quail
    So now I'm wondering if it's just a temporary thing, I'm hoping it's not, cuz' I think it'd be kind of cool. ahahaha

    I might upload pictures of him as he grows every once in awhile regardless though, and see if he stays like that.
