    Hi,
    Could someone please help me with sexing wobbles. He/She is a Favorelle/Polish cross. Her mother the Polish was white. He/she was a late hatcher and so is a bit developmentally delayed (and wobbly, thus the name) so hasn't crowed/egg squatted yet. He/she is about 22 weeks old.

    I know that Favorelles are not usually coloured (now I know, I didn't realise when I got her) but I thought it might be the Polish coming out. I'm really confused!

    Please can anyone help me?

    What do you mean by "not coloured?" like, they are white? Because the salmon hens have colour over their shoulders and backs mainly, boys are very different. They can be sexed from hatching. Where the markings are on your chook are similar to where the are on my girl. But I think I see hackle feathers around it's neck. But then again my faverolle took AAAAAGESSSS to start laying so you might have a girl in the end lol

    I would say more roo though, just the way it holds itself. But then that could be the wobble showing! .... wow you do have a tough one! lol

    You can get blue and salmon ones, here's my salmon girl (see the markings (not colour just placement) similarities?

    Sorry, by not coloured I meant without markings. This is my first Favorelle cross so not sure what they are supposed to look like. it's a very timid little roo if it is a roo but I suppose that can happen.

    Are you sure that he is a faverolle/polish cross. He doesn't have a crest which is dominate is polish crosses. I am thinking that the 5th toe from the faverolle is a dominant trait along with feathered legs.
