    I bought 2 marans yesterday and the woman I bought them from showed me around and pointed out her new salmon faverolles chickens.. I'm new at this chicken thing, and there were so many chickens in this coop didn't know what she was pointing at, anyway the very next enclosure she says; see that's a salmon faverolles pullet, do you want her? No really don't have the room. She went on "I really don't want her for breeding she is not a good example of a faverolle, don't think she'll be around here long." Okay thinking she was sending her to the big chicken coop in the sky, I took her, (in another post got her home and found her to have an impacted crop, worked on her all night better today.) I started looking up info and pic of SF here and she looks more like a mahogany faverolles mut if anything to me. What do you think and is there any hope she will feather out into a half decent faverolles, if that's what she is. [​IMG] think I put this under the wrong heading?

    As best as I can tell, the colouring looks more like mille fleur--definitely does not look salmon, but I cannot tell the feather detail from the photos.

    boy your right the coloring looks closer to the MF,but she has the 5 toes and I think will be a standard size.

    How old is she? Salmon roos look similar when young. I also know of one hatchery that produces pullets with a lot of off colors.
