Baby Chicks -- 2 weeks -- Salmon Faverolle sexing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Here are my adorable little chicks -- 2 weeks old today.

 

 

That's a Cinnamon Queen in front, EE on the right, Delaware in back and Salmon Faverolle with its head out of the shot. Of course I'm dying to know the sex of all of them (the feed store said 85% pullets) but I know it's early. The only one I'm a little worried is a roo is the Cinnamon Queen.

 

Though it's early, I have heard that you can sex Salmon Faverolles early due to color. I also found an old post that mentioned wing length as a good determiner. Here's a better shot of my SF. Any guesses?

Cinnamon Queen is a sex link breed/cross, so that's the one with the least chance of being a roo (right?).  I have one too, 14 days old today, looks very much like yours. Here she is:
