    I ask this because, I ordered eggs off Ebay and what I purchased was frizzle Cochin...my eggs hatched and are two days old, I have this sinking suspicion they aren't frizzle, love em anyways. Do they look different then non frizzle Cochins, when they hatch and fluff up?

    Don't worry yet. The frizzle will take about two weeks to show up in your chicks, if they have the gene. The very ends of their wings will start to turn out. Be prepared if they are frizzles, as they will look very ugly for a loooooong time! They will also have what looks like bald patches because their feathers turn out and don't lay flat. They are ohh so cute when they get all their feathers though!

    Hi WannaBChick,

    I also ordered some eggs from another BYCer, and it is a batch of Frizzle Cochin LF. Of the few that hatched, only 1 turn out frizzled, but that's alright, because when you buy frizzle Cochins, some of them will not be frizzle, although they may have the gene. Only half the batch will hatch frizzled.

    Here is Neo, a day old.

    No feathers curling yet.

    And here he is, 1 week old today.

    As you can see, the feathers on the wings start showing first. The curling is very clear. The ones which are not frizzled, have flat regular feathers.

    I have to admit, Neo is really growing on me, he is feisty, bold, and beautiful. He was named by another BYCer, after his coloring, Neopolitan.
