My wonderful husband picked some chickens up for me today, but I'm not really sure what they are.

I'm not sure if momma chicken is a purebred, but I'm quite certain her babies are just barnyard mix. She's an odd size, in between bantam and the size of my barred rock hens.

The photos of single chicks that are all possibly purebred. Chicken #2 is the only one whose breed was marked and is supposed to be a faverolle.. but I'm more than doubtful. #3 I'm thinking mille Fleur? #4 buff orpington?

Oh, I just noticed in my post I mixed up which chickens I had tagged as which number, my description of number 2 & 3 are mixed up. Three is the one said to be a faverolle, two is the one I think looks like a mille Fleur.

How can you tell so early that it is a Cockerel? Just for future reference.

Faverolles can be sexed early by color. I can't find where my photo album went, so here's a stock image where you can see the difference. Female left, male right.

Oh, interesting! Thanks!

(Well I had gotten the only two faverolles, and I apparently now have two more roos.. crap. Lol)
