    Hello,

    A week ago I bought 5 Bantam blue salmon fav chicks from a local breeder. They are now around 3 1/2 weeks old. 2 of them have always looked a little different than the others. They have a black stripe on their heads and a brown/black stripe down their backs. The other 3 were more of the yellow body with the color on their wings and tails. They all have a lot more color now, but I thought I'd post some pics of the 2 "different" ones. Maybe they are mixed?? I don't know if the Blue Salmon color differently when they are babies? What do you think?
    Thanks [​IMG]

    Those are not pure Faverolles. Favs have beards, and 5 toes. They may be a cross or a completely different breed, idk. I would ask the breeder what other varieties he/she has. Do your have pics of the other chicks?
    Here is a picture of a couple of my Favs as chicks. Blue Salmon rooster on the left, "regular" Salmon rooster on the right.

    They do all have 5 toes. Here are a couple other pics of the other chicks--not enough profile though. I'll have to take more. I asked the breeder if they could be mixed and she never answered. [​IMG]
    She did not represent them as mixed though...guess it will be interesting to see how they look as adults.

    How disappointing. A couple of the reasons that I wanted the Faverolle breed was because I like how they look and heard they have good temperaments....now I don't know what I have. I really hate being lied to and ripped off [​IMG]
