    I was wondering what colour this chick will be. I know nothing about colouring so please help me out. She is a 2 and a half week old frizzle chick. She is black and has yellow markings. Her feathers are just coming in and they seem to be black with white tips. What is that called? And also, how long does it take for a chicks feathers to frizzle?

    Here is the chick

    Quote:Won't let me see the pic. But I would think it's one of two things. Either the bird will come in with all black adult feathers, or they will stay black with white and be mottled

  6. Hi! Was it an egg from here marked 'F'? It came from the pen with the 'lemon blue with the barring gene' Cochin boy and the hens are frizzled blue and black Cochins and CochinxSilkie crosses: pics.
    Sounds like it will be a black and smooth.
    If it was a frizzle it would be showing frizzling by now. If it inherited barring, you'd see a yellow head-spot.
    Try to repost the pic, please.
