    I have my first ever Salmon Faverolles and I was wondering if someone could tell me about what age the cockerals start getting their black feathers?

    My babes were 1 month on the 13th and all the other babes I am pretty sure I have a ?fairly? accurate guess on what who is, these guys not so sure as I have never had them before.

    So tell me what you think!

    They are quite identical except the first one is quite a bit poofier than the other, so when beside each other is usually the only time I can tell them apart, haha!

    at just a couple of days old maybe at a week you can tell all the boys from the girls because girls all have brown wings and the boys are dark brown to black, but you won't be seeing any black beards on those beautiful little girls!!!

    Quote:Beautiful girls. Since you hatched them yoursef I am sure they must be from SQ stock, but I do have a hatchery pullet with some black in her beard-- just sayin'
