    I got this chicken from a girl who told me it is a young roo. But after looking at pics of Salmon Faverolle's I am not sure. I am new at raising chickens, so I do not know the tell tale signs and how to tell. Can anyone help?
    Thank you.

    Rooster coloration is very distinctive and far darker.

    Her loss is your gain! Unless you really wanted a rooster, that is. That is a pullet all the way. Faverolles are fairly easy to sex as the colors are quite different for males vs females.
