    I picked up a few chicks at the feed store. Three of them are supposed to be Salmon Faverolles. Once I got them home I noticed that one of the chicks from the Faverolles bin doesn't have feathers on her feet and her wing is pure white. She is also a bit smaller and not quite as yellow and has tail feathers. Here are some photos. I just hope she's a nice girl.

    The mystery chick has her back towards us. A Salmon Faverolle is facing us.

    Now seven weeks later. She's a banty.

    Any ideas are appreciated.

    She may still be a Salmon Faverolle. Examine her feet. Somtimes that happens and the chick ends up having feathers on its feet.

    Thanks, I love this site. I forgot to mention that the mystery chick has one less toe than the other two Faverolles.

    Now that they are older I can tell she's a banty of some sort. She's just half the size of the favorelles. Not sure what type of bantam. Her feathers are off white.

    One of the others is a roo. I can't have a rooster so should I eat him or find him a new home? Only one out of the three faverolle pullets turned out to be a favorelle pullet.
