Any idea what my banty Salmon Faverolles are?

    It begins again with the same introduction: I thought these were both cockerels, but their light feathering is making me wonder (big surprise, right? [​IMG]). Again, I know 2 weeks and a day is really early to know for sure, or even put a finger on it at all. Seeing how my bantam Wheaten AM cockerel, Ling, has feathered out has kind of given me an idea, though, of what juvenile SF cockerels would look like. I'll add one last thing; these are not hatchery stock but are bred to the standard, so I'm pretty sure that if they are pullets, they won't feather in dark.

    Here they are in relation to Ling, who is about a week older.

    I don't see any dark roots like those that came in on Ling's shoulders at this age.

    They look like pullets.

    Thank you so much! I'm REALLY hoping they don't change on me, since if they do end up being cockerels, they'll be going to the auction place. [​IMG]

    I'm guessing pullets, but I want to see what keesmom says.

    They are pullets. Who did you get them from?

    Eagle Nest Poultry, which belongs one of the main judges of poultry shows in Ohio. I'm sure they'll be beautiful when grown. [​IMG]

    Thanks, Lily! [​IMG] I ended up naming them Ginger and Ashley, which is kind of a family joke.
