    I've never seen a Salmon faverolles as a chick but, would think it is a male,, .do to the color coming in on the wings. Males grow up to have dark and light feathers whereas the girls are light.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join to our flock. Your chick is pretty young to be certain, but based on the apparent darkness of the flight feathers coming in I would lean toward a male Salmon Faverolle. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Thank you everyone for your responses & welcomes. I'll have to re home him when he's older. We aren't zoned for Roos here in Oceanside, CA. I'm curious to see how he/she turns out.

    [​IMG] I'm glad you joined our "flock!"

    I'm leaning towards your chick being a cockerel, but I wouldn't be 100% sure about that yet.

    I'm leaning towards cockerel, but it is really too young to be sure.
