|The Faverolle is one of our favorite chicken breeds. They're gorgeous
and wonderfully odd-looking, with muffs, a beard, feathered legs and
five toes. Salmon Faverolles are the most commonly available variety,
and we offer them here.
Hens are beautiful, with snowy breasts
and fluffy white faces: their backs are a lovely honeyed salmon color
with white lacing. Roosters are huge and magnificent, parading around
with a virtual rainbow of colors: iridescent black where the hens are
white, burnished with bronze on their backs and wings, while their
hackles and saddles the color of pale straw. The chicks are creamy
yellow, sometimes with a sooty smudge or two, and they are so cute with
their tiny downy legs!
Male Faverolles are particularly calm and
dignified, and make great roosters for the home flock since they are not
as aggressive as some others. The hens lay medium-sized light brown or
creamy eggs in prolific numbers, and they are good winter layers, too.
They are shy and sweet-natured, but so docile that they tend to find
themselves at the bottom of the pecking order in a mixed flock. Chicks
can get picked on, too, so for that reason, Salmon Faverolles are often
NOT the most hardy breed as chicks.
Shipping: Eggs are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. No need to
choose a faster shipping method besides 'Ground'. If you'd like eggs
shipped via USPS Express Mail, please give us a call!
