    1 month old Salmon Faverolles. I'm thinking it's a little Roo

    I ordered 12 females of all different breeds and this one I can tell is a Cockerel. I called where I ordered the chicks from and then emailed the photos of him, and they told me some females can get black fethering. I never heard of a hen Salmon Faverolles with black feathers.

    Some Faverolle females do have a bit of black through their chest. But that much, at that age, leaves no doubts.
