How old of a chick? As day olds both sexes look the same.

When a few weeks older they look different.

Here's my female chick. She's 6 months old now and just started laying eggs. smile.png I'm not sure is there a difference between male and female salmon Favorelle chicks?

I want some! I don't want hatchery birds because the ones I've looked at seem a little thin and also thin in the muff.

Well I know you said you don't want hatchery birds, but you should take a look at chickens for backyards hatchery. That is where I got peaches from (the chick above). All of their birds are very well bred, they are all very healthy, they come true to breed, and they grow up to be beautiful birds! They also have great customer service and they are the only hatchery that I order my baby chicks from, I have ordered babies from them 4 times now including an order that I just ordered and it should be here on the first week of March. This time I ordered another Salmon Favorelle chick, along with 10 other standard breed chicks, and 7 bantam chicks. I'm very excited and super anxious to get them. This hatchery also let's you order a minimum of 3 baby chicks for people that want a smaller flock. smile.png I highly recommend them if you want to get this breed! big_smile.png

Hi I'm new here and new to chicken keeping actually I don't have any yet).

 

 

I am intending to get some for our urban backyard. Looking at breed temperaments, I thought a couple of Faverolles might be good as I have young children (aged 4 and 1), and we're not looking to be drowned in eggs. However I've also heard reports they are very loud, which I think would drive us all a bit mad, and possibly the neighbours as well. Also, is two birds enough for them to be happy?

 

Any thoughts on this?
