    My two 3 and a half week old Faverolles look so different, I figure one is male and the other female. What do you think? Hope these pictures work - my first time trying this. Thanks!

    i think the second one is a roo. the boy's usually feather out slower than the girls. They are both very pretty.

    They are both females. Faverolles are easy to sex once the feathers begin coming in. Females will get the lighter feathers like yours have, and the males will have mostly black feathers coming in.

    Definitely pullets. Of my 4 pullets I had two light, two darker- they look just like yours. [​IMG]
