    Hi Cindy...I've raised other salmons and none of them were ever silver in color, always a yellowish, so I'm uncertian. Wish you or someone were a bit closer to view him in person. I'll give it time and see what he looks like in a few more months. Thanks so much.

    I have a couple of young cockerels now that are very light/silver. One has almost white hackles/saddle feathers so I don't think it's that unusual.

    I can try to get a pic of him tomorrow but it will be without the sun. Or the beer cans. [​IMG] 7 am is too early for beer.

    I thought he was very young. You need to wait till he moults then you will see his colors change. Salmon Faverolles are basically silver weatons. This is one thing I don't like about Faverolles. You can tell how the pullets will look with very little change in their color after they moult. Its different with the cockerels. You have to hold on to them longer to see their true colors. That's just the way it goes.

    Thanks Dick, I appreciate all the help from you and Cindy. He's a sweet bird and very "wide", so I hope he matures well.
