    :welcome! My guess would be it's a salmon faverolles, and if so it's a male. The dark colors in the wings along with the pink comb give away the gender.

    I agree with the above posters. It is a Faverolles, and a cockerel with those dark chest and leg feathers.

    I'm a new chick owner thank you. From what I look at it didn't seem to me they were spurs! Thank you everyone for your help [​IMG]

    They're not spurs, just extra toes, which are standard on the faverolles breed :)

    He will be a very pretty rooster :)

    As to your spur question, on my birds they seem to start coming in at around six months.
