Are Salmon Fav Pullets supposed to have this much dark feathering?

Or do I just have a chick that is badly colored? Or .... something else all together?

She's nearly 3 weeks now -- and has so many dark feathers starting to come in (even her chest has red/dark ones starting to poke) .... she's not looking a whole lot like breed pics I've studied.

Also, her feet feathers are coming in dark.

Sorry for so many blurry pics -- this chick would NOT hold still!

Hatchery faverolles pullets are sometimes darker than the pictures you see online. Usually, when mine hatch I can tell a cockerel by 3 weeks by the black coming in on shoulders and head. Sometimes it takes a week more, but I think you have a pullet.
