I have two pullets (?) that were hatched out from Salmon Faverolle eggs I bought. It was a bad hatch, lots of problems, etc etc.

I ended up with one girl who looks normal, and another with very strange coloring. She is a darker brown color with darkly striped feathers on her head, brown tips on all chest feathers, and some black feathering in her "beard".


Sorry the pics are so bad....she is less than cooperative. Obviously she is with 2 RIR pullets and 1 normal Salmon Fav.

The coloring appears completely wrong but is actually quite pretty. Especially the darkly striped feathers on her head/neck.

Is this just a poor quality and poorly colored Salmon Fav? Or are there other varieties that I don't know about?

I have 2 Salmon Faverolles, one is light and the other is darker like yours. Mine was much darker when it was younger, now it is getting a few lighter feathers in it. I am sort of glad, cause I can tell them apart lol. They are 5 1/2 months old.

That is a very poor example of a Faverolle by any means. Not even close to be a mahogany either!

I would not use her for breeding but she is pretty as colorwise and cute!
