    This is a hatchery salmon faverolle. We named her/him knuckles because he/she has a bent toe. He/she attacks the wisk broom everytime I clean, but is otherwise not showing any signs of aggressive behavior. I have 5 of these, they are 11 weeks old tomorrow, 3 of them have light chests and nice salmon backs. 1 has some black here and there. Then there is this one... is it just a bad hatchery faverolle pullet or am I getting a roo? Here is Knuckles (I took multiple views to be sure):

    I think it's a roo, because not only does it have black, but Knuckle's tail looks rather pointy.

    He looks like my roo Sam, and will get more brown and black with big black whiskers. His 2 sisters have the multi-shades of rust and very small combs. They are the sweetest and most friendly of all my chciks.

    Another roo? That makes 4/27 in an order that was supposed to be all pullets (even at 90%, the guarantee, they are getting a bit off the average). I hope he turns out sweet, I was hoping for a Faverolle roo (the other 3 are dark brahmas). Does the black always mean roo on a Salmon faverolle?

    If you are interested in learning more about the Faverolles there is an active thread in the breed section. This is George and Martha, a young LF Salmon Faverolle pair. They are from breeder stock and not hatchery.
