  2. Looks like a favorelle hen to me. At least, that's what mine looks like :)

  3. I forgot to mention my Favorelle isn't pure bred, so you could very well have a mix breed too. But it still looks like mine

    Huskers is on to something. I have regular salmon favs and they have more feathers on their feet. I imagine a fav mix hen with one clean legged parent would have sparse foot feathers like your chicken. And the 5 toes are telling.

    Also suspecting pullet.

    If you have a faverolle that looks like that it isn't a hen.
    Attached are a couple pics.
    Males are the dark ones. Females are the lighter ones.

  7. That's interesting because mine really is a hen, lays eggs and everything. Must be more mixed than I originally thought. Thanks for the info!!! Good to know!!

    I was about to say :gigfaverolle hens definitely don't look like that
    We had a salmon faverolle hen and now a lot of faverolle mixed hens that are her daughters, granddaughters and great granddaughters. The 5th toe, feathered legs and muff can still show up even generations later, depending on the other breeds used in the cross


    And to the OP, I think you have a faverolle rooster, very lovely breed
     
  9. Yeah I just googled it and am blown away by what the hens look like! Mine looks JUST like the roosters but she lays eggs! My jaw is still on the floor from how far it dropped reading these messages :gig

    If you knew what both parents were, it might explain her dark coloring- nothing points out gender like a bird laying eggs. She's a girl!!
