So this little guy is around three weeks old, and I've been looking at pictures of feather sexing Favorelles. We're going to keep it anyway, but I'm just not sure. All of the pictures are if the same chick.

I guess I'll wait. I read on Feathersite that they can be accurately sexed from 10 days, by the colour of their feathers. Is that true?

My understanding is that yes, they're supposed to be feather sexable by color once the breast feathers start coming in. However, I've read many times on here about people who had really dark females and/or really light males. It seems that hatcheries aren't doing much to keep that sexing ability in their stock.
