    this isn't a faverolle rooster, its more likely an easter-egger rooster. Faverolle roosters don't come color in like that unless it is a white one which are extremely rare! Also it as a pea comb (or appears to) and faverolles have single combs. (On second look, it may be a single comb the pictures not real clear. but I don't know about faverolle.

    Looks like a single comb...

    And... Looks like a roo, a white faverolle roo.

    But, what color are the legs?

    The coloration is totally wrong for a Fav. rooster. Based on coloration for the breed I would say pullet or else a mutant.

    What colour/variety is the chick supposed to be? It's certainly not salmon. The first photo looks like a pea comb, the 2nd like a single--which is it?

    I see beard & muffs; does it have feathered legs & feet and 5 toes?

    well, now i feel bad because i just gave him away early this afternoon to a guy..and i told him he was a Salmon Fav. and that i was pretty sure he was a roo. Which is what i THOUGHT he was...because i bought the eggs as pure bred eggs...i had 3 hatch from the Fav. eggs...and 2 very early on had the black on the wings..and i was told that was an indicator of a roo...so i gave them to another BYC'R....and i kept this one to watch because i thought it was a hen because it was so light. but as he grew..and the comb got bigger and pretty red for a 5 week old. i started to think he was a roo..not a hen...*sigh* i hope that guy isnt upset with me now! i dont want him to think i mislead him about the breed of the bird! UGH! are you guys positive they dont come in white? it had the feathered feet and muffs of a Fav.....maybe her line has a white gene??..
