    I have a Cockrell that was originally said to be a salmon faverolle . He keeps changing and I'm trying to figure it out . More help please [​IMG]

    I think he is indeed a Salmon Faverolles, but that's just my opinion. [​IMG] Does he have feathered legs?

    He does look like he could be a hatchery quality salmon faverolles (the breed name always has the 's' on the end whether plural or not because they were named after the town of Faverolles in France).

    I agree he's likely a hatchery Faverolles, or a mix thereof. This is one breed where the color changes quite a bit from chicks, especially on the males. He doesn't have the desired color, that's why I say he could be a mix.

    agree with donrae - his color is far off - hard to tell hatchery quality vs mix - often they are the same
