    Yes, she looks nothing at all like a Faverolle. A female salmon faverolle would be white chested with buff/cream/salmon back, wings and head with some light gray mixed in and she would have a big fluffy beard like your roo. Completely different colors than your golden partridge girl there.

    Stupid question - whats the point of game birds? These girls seem heavier than my year old chickens.

    Your suspected Faverolle rooster is actually a mutt.

    Your suspected Faverolle hen is also a mutt.

    The last hen shown is a Gamehen of some sort.

    The likely Hatch pullet probably is so.
