Is this a Salmon Favarolle Rooster?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 


Our chicks are two weeks old. We think this gold chick was our free rare breed from McMurray. It has 5 toes, my husband is pretty sure it's a Salmon Favarolle. We are really thinking it might be a roo. Quite a bit of black coloring, no tail feathers, and bald wing bows. What do y'all think?

Also, does anyone recognize the lovely grey one?

Well these are the only five toed chicken breeds I know of (could be more though!)

Silkie

Dorking

Sultan

Faverolle

Houdan

 

I am pretty sure it is not a silkie because it seems as though there is feather growth. Can't quite tell in the picture so I gotta ask-does she have feathers on her feet and or legs?


You can't leave footprints in the sands of time of you're sitting on your butt, And who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?

Okay so then in that case (keeping in mind I am a pretty good researcher but the worst breed guesser EVER!!) I think you do have a faverolle!! It is not a silkie, dorkings and houdans don't have feathered legs and the sultan has a head crest so that leaves.....Faverolle!!

It is a Faverolles. The males can take forever to feather out. As juveniles they also tend to be messy color-wise too.

Brahmas also have feathered legs.
