    It'd make sense if she was the little one. Yoko are only supposed to grow to about 5lbs right? Faverolles are actually recommended for showing because they're one of the calmest standard breeds. Their adorable! Enjoy![​IMG]

    Real cuties there. Not sure, but the Brown Stars look like Ameracanas and the Brown Ameracanas look like Brown Stars. Ameracanas have dark legs. Those buff brahmas are adorable!

    Very interesting...maybe i have them mixed up? LOL That one sure did look Ameraucana to me too with her buff cheeks. So are the brown stars chipmunky looking? I thought Ameracana's looked like chipmunks? Now I'm confused! lol​

    Ameracanas (EE's) come in several colors and often have puffy cheeks and usually willow or slate legs. I not real familiar with Brown Stars though.

    Ideal has a drawing of brown sex-link chicks on their site. They have chipmunk stripes.

    https://secuservices.com/ideal/newideal/selectproduct.aspx?qty=1&Product=382

    The dark ones are supposed to be females and the light ones males.

    Edited to say: With the above info I would say the three dark ones in the first pic are the brown stars and the light ones is an EE along with the three you have listed as brown stars.

    Your Favorolles will probably settle down when they're older
