    I saw this pretty little bird on craigslist, and the sellers said it was a cockerel, but I don't see "cockerel" in there. [​IMG] Am I wrong? I am thinking of buying it, If it is a pullet.

    Thanks!

    Depends on the age but looks like a pullet to me.

    I thought so too. I'll need to e-mail the seller.

    Okay, just found out that the Faverolle is 12 weeks. He looks real young there.

    Looks like my faverolles pullet at that age. I wonder why the seller thinks she's male?

    o_O Either that's one confused seller, or one confused bird stealing female feathers to wear.
