Roosters or Hens? Hi, we are 4Her's and hatched several new chicks 4 weeks ago. A few years ago we hatched and raised mixed breed chicks for fun and their eggs. Now, we hatched several full/pure breeds for 4H and would really like to gender sex them before winter in Kansas. Here are pics up of our Salmon Favorelles. I cannot tell if saddle feathers are developing, or too soon, or if the darker feathered and darker chest chicks with more developed combs are truly young Roos. I would greatly appreciate insight and wisdom from experienced Salmon Favorelle Fanciers. These 4 week old chicks are already becoming pets, so the process is becoming more emotional. We intend to keep all hens and a rooster from each breed for 4H projects. Your thoughts and comments are greatly welcomed and appreciated - Roos or Hens? Thank you. Julie K.
