    I was told this was a salmon faverolle but I'm having second guesses. Any ideas ??[​IMG]

    I personally think he's a hatchery-quality Sal Fav, but I could be wrong. [​IMG] How old?

    He has the body type of a faverolle but he is WAY dark. Could be a faverolle mix, or just a super dark one. Very pretty though.

    He's 3 1/2 months old. I like his colors. It's hard to show on a picture. He does have cream color started on his neck.

    He's getting the red across his back and wing bars like he should. But he should also be showing the creamy white colored saddle, hackle, and primary wing feathers. I'd say he is likely a cross. He could molt them in later but they almost always show them by now.

    Is he rumpless, or are the other chickens picking on him?

    Probably Faverolle mix.
