    Frizzle-feathered chicks look like any other chick of that breed until they are between 4 days and a week old (when their wing feathers start growing in). It will become obvious at that time if they have the gene or not.

    The topmost picture on this blog page is a good example of a newly feathered baby chick with the frizzle gene.
