    Very lazily bred pullet. Faverolles like this I would say are not Faverolles but mixed breeds.

    But the crown is red at 8 weeks, and my other Faverolle is all light tan and white.

    And a cockerel's comb would be obviously bright pinkish red and protruding well from the head by now. As for your other bird, I've seen a few decent pullets come out in a batch of lazy hatchery Faverolles. I just got done working with a batch of about 25 of these and perhaps 20 were dark, the other 5 were less off colored. All without a doubt pullets, and most identical to your bird. It's female.

    My pet chicken. Out of all my Salmon Faverolles this on is the only one with black and dark tan feathers and a red comb. I thought for sure is was a rooster. I'm glad I asked here.
