    I bought some hatchery red frizzles from Ideal. I know people get upset when they buy frizzles and end up with non frizzled birds, but I understand thats how it goes. You breed a frizzle to a non frizzle to keep the feathers strong but only get 50% frizzled birds out of it.

    Well, I need frizzle vibes! I'm hoping that at least 1 of my 3 (which according to math I SHOULD have a 150% chance of having at least 1 frizzle) chickies is frizzled. I'm also hoping it's a boy but I won't push it. They're 5 days old today and I *THINK* the little wing feathers look like they might be curling but I'm not sure.

    Here's hoping! [​IMG]

    If not, you can always Toni Home Wave.


    PS. I have little 1-week Easter Egger whose cheek feathers curl up towards her eyes.. I wonder if she has a Frizzle gene in her somewhere. She and I send you best wishes for Frizzy babies!

    So, I checked the growth of their little wing feathers today and took pics for you. I'm like 90% sure #1 is going to be frizzled, about 50% sure of #2 and not sure at all on #3. What do you guys think?

    So, the good news is that everyones feathers are curling so far! Number 3 still hasn't feathered out very much but the little bit it has looks like #1 and #2s early feathers. I'll post updated pics soon!
