    We got a couple of Salmon Faverolles from a guy that got them from Ideal (if you read my other posts they are supposed to be 5 weeks, but I think they are at least 8 weeks lol) I suspect one cockeral, but they are supposed to be pullets.

    What do you think?

    Look like girls to me! Boys have totally different colors, including a black underside. Yours are mostly white, though they do have some color leakage. Just a sign that they aren't show quality, but they'll still be sweet pets and great layers!

    Quote:Thanks, we have to decided which one to keep now lol. We got 9 chicks, in case some didnt make it (you know chicken math) and we only want 3, but there are 4 breeds we definitely want. Sigh

    Just know that faverolles are so sweet and docile, they are usually at the bottom of the pecking order in a mixed flock. I have 6 bantams, including a bantam faverolle. My bantam faverolle is by far the largest bantam, but she is at the bottom of the pecking order. Even the silkie picks on her!!! [​IMG] They have never hurt her, they just don't let her near them while they're eating, she has to wait until they're all done. [​IMG] so sad!

    Quote:Most of our chickens are pretty sweet and docile. The head girl is a EE, we have a New Hampshire that is mean to girls down lower, she is calming though. She tries to pick on the rescue EE and I went in the coop and every time she would mess with her, I would put my hand on her back and she would squat. I kept doing that a few days and she does not pluck at her any more.
