    I am thinking this might be a faverolle male, but I am not positive... the white chicken next to it in the second
    Picture is the same age, and we bought them together. You can see how much larger than the white one it is. I am thinking they may both be favorelles.
    What do you think? Breed/sex?
    Thanks for the answers

    He's just an Easter Egger. He's lacking the 5th toe, single comb, and feathered shanks for a Faverolle and has the wrong leg color and body color for an Ameraucana.

    EE's commonly have this color. [​IMG] It is indeed pretty.

    I'm not familiar with faverolles. He does, however, look very similar to one of my EE roosters.

    Wow, thanks for the quick replies. I googled and he does look like an easter egger.... So do you guys think it's a rooster, then?
