    After finding out that my blue laced red wyandotte, Bluebell, was a he, I am now worried that Pinkie, salmon Favorolle is as well. The pictures are not the greatest, but I hope they are enough. Any input would be great!

    She's a girl. Faverolles are sexually dimorphic, and the roosters look completely different from hens. She'd be mostly black with straw colored hackles and saddles if she was a male!

    Thank you! :) She was the one breed I really really wanted and ordered special. One out of four survived.

    Female.

    Every time I see someone post one here, I start thinking how I could work a few into my next hatchery order.......then again if I ordered every bird I like, I'd have to use our entire acre as chicken run!
