    We got these chicks from tractor supply. I'm almost sure the ones in the background are Salmon Faverolles... But not sure if the white one is female or a different breed. They were all supposed to be cornish cross... Lol.

    Welcome to BYC. TSC strikes again. They do look like Salmon Faverolles. A second hind toe would assure that breed ID. The darker colored chicks are cockerels.

    They do all have a 5th toe and feathered legs. So the white one would be a pullet?

    Hopefully. I am not certain whether or not there is a white strain of Faverolles; although, I did see what was identified as a splash faverolle at a poultry show.

    I think I have read of white Faverolles, though not certain. I know more colors have been created.

    I know there are white faverolles, but appearently they are very rare in us. I wouldn't think I'd randomly get one from tractor supply. Lol

    Update. I pulled my chicks out side to get a good look... The white one has light brown spots on the feather coming up just above their wings on their back. So maybe female Salmon?

    The dark ones are indeed Salmon Favorelle cockerels. The white one I am unsure of. There are White Favorelles but they are quite rare.
