    This is my "mystery chick". I'm thinking Salmon Favorolle, roo. What do you guys think? He got a pretty nasty wound between his shoulder blades at 1 1/2 weeks old, so the purple is from the blue kote. He seems to be feathering really slow, he'll be 4 weeks old on monday.

    Looks like the salmon Favorolles McMurray sent me. They seem to like using the Favorolles for the mystery chick, I have recieved them twice.

    Yes, it is a Faverolles cockerel. The boys can take a while to feather out.
