# At the Big Bang, when particles were created, could free standing quarks (not bound in a hadron) have been created and remain alone today?

You can't pull a quark out of a hadron, but at time $$T = 10^{-43}$$ seconds or shortly thereafter, when all particles were created, wouldn't all quarks be individual, and not grouped into hadrons, (which I assume at those energy levels couldn't form)?

Could any of those stand alone quarks still be by themselves today?
