LIFE: Bantam surprise, Frizzle??

Well day four and the chicks are already bigger, they are starting to get their little wing feathers. The smallest chick i have is a little black one. (see him in the right picture) I noticed its wing feathers are different from the others so i looked it up and i THINK it might be a baby frizzle! A frizzle is a type of feathering where the chickens feathers do not lay flat against its body but curve outward giving it a very frizzled look. That would be pretty cool if it turns out to be one of these frizzle chickens. Only time will tell and i will keep updates here. Also on day 4 the i saw the chicks using their roost for the first time!
