1st time Salmon Faverolles owner here. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how many of these are Roos and how many are pullets. Also, is the last one a Faverolle at all?

I'm going to hazard a guess and say that 2 and 4 are male because of the black wing feathers coming in, but it's really too early to tell for sure.
Yes, the older two I have were very easy to differentiate at 2weeks as there was one of each. I can see two are clearly female but was hoping there may be another female or two. I think you’re right with the four males though!😩

Here are a couple of mine at 5 weeks and very easily told apart however I had one (at about 2/3 weeks old) I was sure was female as it had salmon coming through on the wings and it eventually feathered out black and is a boy 🤦‍♀️ My early guess would be that pics 2,4 and 6 are boys and 1,3 and 5 look to be pullets, they are lovely by the way!

Thank you so much for your reply, yours look gorgeous!😍 I can’t wait to see what mine turn out like 😃 My three week old “girl” is also getting darker by the day... I guess I’ll have to wait and see!

Are they from a hatchery or from a breeder? There are a couple that are most certainly pullets. But with hatchery females getting darker all the time, it's entirely possible that some of the suspected cockerels are actually pullets. Post some more pictures in a week or two and it should be more obvious.
