    I went out to lock the chickens in, and took these pictures.

    They are almost 4 months old.

    They are beautiful. Do your Light Brahmas "talk" a lot? My 18 week old Lt Brahma just talks up a storm. She sees you and she starts talking, you pick her up and she talks, you walk by and she talks. Very deep low voice too almost like a long slow growl of sorts. LOL

    They are Salmon Faverolles. They are a very calm and curious bird. I like the breed alot.

    The Salmon Faverolle coloring is different in the males and females. Males are almost black, so they can be sexed at around7-10 days old.

    Well its not a true Salmon color but neverthanless its a Faverolle for sure if they all got fifth toes! That did indicate that these Faverolles were from a hatchery........

    They are called Sport Faverolles, it is a wild color but I think they are pretty!

    A true Salmon Faverolle would not be of that color at all, its too dark unless the photo at night is too dark. A daytime photo will show the true color. They do remind me of Mahogany Faverolles.

    Heres the the pictures of a true Salmon Faverolle and a Mahogany Faverolle.
