    Let's start out with. I know, i know, too young to tell. Here's the thing though. I got an assortment of chicks the other day. 1 cochin, 2 EE, 2 Red Rangers, 2 white rocks, 3 black and white bantams and what i believed in my haste were either 2 more red rangers or 2 red sex links but i didn't pay attention to which chicks came from which tubs. Well now i stand here looking and two of the chicks have heavily feathered legs, cream white wing feathers coming in, yellow skin and 5 toes. Did i by some miracle chance ACCIDENTALLY get 2 Salmon Faverolles? A SF and a Brahma are the only two chicks i could think of that would have feathered legs with yellow skin and only the SF would have 5 toes i believe. What say you?

    It appears you did not get what chicks you wanted. I'm not sure if those are Favorelles, as I have never raised them myself nor see any chicks of their breed. Although, your description fits the Faverolle, so that's what I deem they are. P.S. Brahma have 4 toes so it's not a Brahma.

    This was my SF that a hawk killed about 2-3 months ago.

    They could very well be Favs. Here are a couple of mine at 5 days.

    I just remembered there was a tub that was assorted heavies. That may be the explanation. Still cannot believe there may have been salmon faverolles tossed in with barred rocks and EE's.

    These are the 2 EE but i think i didn't have luck of the draw on these two. Both look to be males.
