I think he is probably a he too. Looks exactly like how my male chicks feather in and at three weeks the females usually have more feathers. The boys are so slow to feather.

A very good book. It's full of very useful information, pictures, and tips. I'd recommend it.
I think this waterer is great. It only holds 2 gallons of water so if you're a younger, older or out of shape it's not too much work to carry from the hose to the coop. It's it's very easy to fill...

Thanks! She and her sisters are looking great! I was worried about a lot of dark feathers when they were real little, but their wing colors are really turning out lovely. Their chest feathers are a beautiful cream color! I'm excited to see them all grown up!!!post #16533 of 167354/23/16 at 7:47amQuote:
Ah, so exciting! You'll have to share more photos.
Also, my faverolle is getting white belly feathers. I don't know if that counts as the chest, haha.post #16534 of 167354/23/16 at 8:30amQuote:
Yes, I would say it is a girl if the belly is white.post #16535 of 167354/24/16 at 1:20amQuote:

Oh, really? Awesome. She's getting white foot and chest feathers but also a bit of brown on the chest, it seems. :/ I'm not too sure what that means.post #16538 of 167354/24/16 at 3:51pmpost #16539 of 167354/24/16 at 5:38pmQuote:
Keesmom is the expert!
Some lines have what they call bleed through which means that sometimes they have colors in places they shouldn't. If she has some brown on her chest, that may be the reason. If you were seeing black on the chest, belly, legs, it would be a boy.
I would share a pic of my girls, but currently my computer is not letting me up load pics to BYC. :-(post #16540 of 167354/25/16 at 9:23amEeek! The little Jerk has calmed down into the middle spot between week 1 and week 2. It's two weeks old today and the first cloudy day of its little life. It's been running and scampering and "flying" and I finally got it as it settled in for a nap:
LOL that face! It's not huddled, it just did that as I took the picture. But talk about a personality shift. It seems to be much happier with the sussex at the top of the order.
How are Faverolles with other birds? This one likes the mirror and a stuffed toy we put in the brooder that's the same color it is. The other birds like those objects as well but the faverolle seems more drawn to them, especially the toy :-/ I'm wondering if I just have too few birds in the brooder...
