    I think the darker colored one is a rooster, not sure about 2nd hen.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Of course two days ago when I picked up the pair they were sold as pullets.

    Thank you. I couldn't remember about the Favorelles. The EE I picked up at the same time is a Rooster( Chicken Math at work, impulse buy) and if I had known about the coloring I would not have chosen him cause I wanted all pullets. The lighter Faverolles was trying to dust bathe in the brown carpet.

    Both girls, the one you think is a rooster just has poor coloring for the standard. She's still a beautiful girl in my opinion though!
