Can Salmon Faverolles be sexed by color as very young chicks?

I don't think as soon as they are hatched but it should be VERY easy to tell once they start getting their wing feathers. I never have of course, I'm just speculating based on how different the males and females look.

You can tell within two weeks.

If the wing feathers start getting dark...roo.

Light... pullet.

Within a couple days(by the time they arrive in the mail) you can see a spot in their wing. A dark spot, grayish to black, will be a male. Tannish to light brown will be a female.

I posted pictures of mine at 11 days old I think and everyone one said it was too early, but at 14 days it was very obvious who was who! So I would say 2 weeks old is a good age. I could almost tell at 11 days but everyone thought it was too early so maybe you should wait till 14 days to be very sure . Just incase something changes along the way!
