    We have a couple of Salmon Favorelle chicks just 4 days from hatch. On the very tips of their wings we are seeing dark color today. Will these be roosters or is it too soon to tell yet?

    They say by about two weeks old, the pullets have brown in their wings and cockerels have black.
     
  4. I have some right now that are around 6 weeks old. The rooster has very very dark chesnut brown-black and the hens are a wheat-light brown color.
