AT what age can you start to gender a salmon faverolle and what would you look for?
you can tell with two weeks. the roos will have darker wing feathers.
on feathersite you can see pics at the bottom of the page to show you.
Thanks for that link. I did take pics of him/her but I'm leaning toward him. Please tell me what you think.
And here is the wing
Doesn't look as dark as the photo on the link but still dark.
I see some breast feathers being lighter instead of darker, it may be a pullet. However, if this chick is from hatchery, its anyones guess but if it gets more black or very dark feathers on chest and legs, you can bet its a male.
Looks like a cockerel to me. Just from what I've researched, the cockerels will have very dark wing feathers (practically black) and the pullets have salmon colored wing feathers. Cute little guy! And they're soooo sweet and friendly!
He acts like a roo if you know what I mean. Sweet though. I'm raising him with some silkies I had hatched. I hatched him from my own salmon faverolles. The dad's feathering is really dark and this chicks is not very dark, almost greyish. That was my only remaining hope. That and that I saw a salmon faverolle pullet once w/ grey feathering mixed in w/ the salmon coloring.
