    I'm a new owner so bare with me. lol

    My chicks started getting their wing feathers Monday night. I have a Silkie, Frizzle and possibly a D'Uccle. Mumble's (my Frizzle), wings flip up. I figured that's the Frizzle? Well Cinnamon my D'Uccle's feather wings are flipping up as well. I've seen lots of pictures of chicks and in none of the pics do their feather wings flip up, or at least not that I've seen. My Silkie, Nugget's feathers don't flip up. So is Cinnamon possibly a Frizzle too? or is that just what new feathers do?


    Mumble, my cry baby. lol

    You're right, when the wing feathers curl up like that, it's the first sign of them being a frizzle.
