    These are Wheaten Marans chicks I got from Green Fire Farms, and this one looks frizzled to me. Is it possible to be a genetic throw back , natural mutation or some sort of other issue?

    Not a Frizzle, some Wheaton Marans do that for some reason or another, We raise them and have hatched out hundreds and ever so often a couple will look just like that, it will correct itself before too long. It may have to do with not getting a certain vitamin or it's not getting enough protein? Wheaton Marans are in my opinion hard to raise. But man they sure are pretty!!! Good luck!
