Not sure on gender of this 3 month old Faverolle

    Its the leg length that is throwing me off. His coloring as indicated male from the hatch but I noticed that his leg length is identical to his sister's. Im used to males having a much longer leg length and have used this characteristic to guess the sex of young chicks before they actually show their true sex. Any ideas?
    Here are some pics to show both:

    They make a cute couple so that is what I have planning for since they hatched. It is his leg length and that speckling that is throwing me off. Ive never seen such in any pics of Faverolles that I have viewed.
    Thank you for your input. I appreciate it.
