    15 days old would take a Pro to be sure of the sex.

    Also wing feather sexing only works on certain breeds and needs to be done in a short time after hatching(24 to 36hrs I believe???)

    I thought I read that Salmon Faverolle's could be sexed by color patterns as early as 2 weeks?

    I'm thinking it's a pullet, but I'm not positive.

    Wait for keesmom, she's the Faverolles person.

    It looks like a pullet! It is pretty young, though, so it'll take time to know for sure. :)
