    This is my 13 week old Salmon Faverolle - Olive. I've been thinking, despite her coloring that she was a hen because I didn't think her comb was very dark or large for her age, but I am not seeing any salmon faverolles with her coloring that aren't roos. A little help, please? :)

    Yeah, that's a cockerel. While I've seen some abysmally colored hatchery pullets before there is no way yours is a girl.
