I just wanted confirmation that this Faverolles "pullet" is really a cockerel. I know hatchery sexing isn't 100% accurate, but this disappoints me, as they also sent 10 extra males for warmth, so I'm overflowing with unwanted males at the moment.

Only the boy salmon Faverolles get black on the chest. With those colors, it can only be a boy.
While I believe this particular chick is a cockerel based on the messy color pattern, there is a particular hatchery does produce pullets with a lot of black. These are all pullets
