    Hi Everyone,
    So, we have a couple of young breeding pairs of BQ Salmon Faverolles (Not Hatchery Stock). We were thrilled when they started breeding, and we put a test egg in the incubator and we got this little one. I thought it might be a bit easier to sex them. This baby is 3 weeks old now, initially I thought it was a pullet, but now I am not so sure. Can anyone tell? Thanks so much!

    My guess would be probably roo cause, of the coloring.

    Definitely a cockerel, especially since you mention that they aren't from a hatchery.

    Yep, looks like a little roo, especially since that comb is already pinking up.
