    #3 looks like a rooster. Ive noticed with my salmon faverolles that the roosters are slower to feather in.

    Quote:Sundown, do you think that goes for white faverolles too? Cause I've noticed a wing growth difference.

    I think so. With my first salmon faverolle hatch, I noticed 3 feathering fast, and 3 feathering alot slower. Well, those 3 slower feathering chicks are roosters. I also noticed it with my other salmon faverolle hatches.

    Hmmm, I am not sure. [​IMG] I am thinking #s 2 and 3 might be cockerels.

    Wondering if Salmon's are a bit different than Blue Salmon's?

    Any black typically indicates a male, as does dark between the shoulder blades. So I wonder if #1 is a blue Salmon cock, even though it is light. I am thinking there wouldn't be black on him.

    Knowing nothing about sexing faverolles, I'm pretty sure #3 is male and #1 I think is a female. Number# seems to change every day.

    Just to confuse everyone further, I have an SF pullet that is colored wrong. She's all brown and black, but she's definitely a pullet and getting ready to start laying any day!
