    I know it's too early to tell, but I was wondering if any one who is experienced in salmon faverolles could give me their best guess as to what sex mine is, also, how old is it? And is its legs the correct color for a faverolle or did I get a poorly colored hatchery quality chick?
    Also here is a picture of my mystery birds wings, I'm still thinking RIR/production red, but I don't know.
    And a picture of my faverolle drinking water because it's just cute and funny.
    And does anyone know how to pronounce faverolle?
    Sorry for all the questions

    Your Faverolles has white legs, which they are supposed to have. You will have to wait until the chick feathers out to know if it's off colored or not. I would guess pullet at this point but I have occasionally been fooled by light colored cockerels. Body feathers are a better indication of sex.

    There is a Faverolles thread here. Feel free to post pictures to get opinions there too.
