    hi everyone! We recently got 10 chicks, 3 of them being silkies. They are 1 week old, 2 of the silkies feathers that are coming in at the ends of their wings look normal and straight, but my 3rd ones feathers are curling dramatically? What's going on? Thanks for any and all advice! :)

    So what does that mean lol? Is he still a full silkie? Is he crossed with something else? Are the feathers something to worry about? This is our first time with chickens sense I was young on a farm so it's new and fun!

    Congrats on the little frizzle! When I had them, it showed up in the wings first and it's going to be a little cutie when it grows up. They were some of my favorites. :thumbsup

    Frizzle is a feather type just like Silkied and Smooth. You should never breed frizzle to frizzle or you could potentially get breakage and very ungood results. They are truly adorable when they grow up sounds like you got lucky!

    I feel lucky lol! She is just so funny to watch. Everyone that comes to see the new chicks always points her out saying what in the world is that? Lol! It's a great conversation starter ;)
