    We purchased straight run chicks. These are the two Salmon Faverolles. I know males will get black feathers, while the females won't. They are only 3 weeks old, so not sure that gender could be determined yet for this breed, but if so, then let me know what you think they are!

    Cuties! It is way too early at this point for gender characteristics to. become obvious. Wait 4-6 more weeks and repost photos. In the meantime, enjoy those adorable fuzz babies! ❤️

    We can wait together! ;-)
    I got 2 favs today, 5 weeks old, and their coloring is so different from the sf I had before. The lady i bought them from swears that they are not HQ but I am not so sure!

    We got a SF from Meyer Hatchery last year, and sold it when it was about 4 months old. It was very pretty, but really a very dark "salmon" color. These two seem much lighter, and I'm looking forward to seeing them fully feathered!

    Here was that Meyer female at around 3 months old:

    Good to know! I was hoping that since there were no black feathers showing by now, that we had 2 girls!

    Those are pullets, no doubt about it.
