Exclusively ours! We blogged about how much we love our Favaucanas a few years back and we were shocked by the overwhelming response, so we decided to breed them just for you!
We adore this designer breed
for its many wonderful qualities: Extreme docility; sage-green, medium to large
eggs; beautiful little muffs, beards, and lightly feathered feet,
(some with five toes!). They have pea combs and profuse feathering for cold-hardiness. Their slender body size helps with heat-tolerance. Then, of course, their overall appearance, something like a blue hawk, simply turns heads.
PLEASE NOTE: We are hatching both F1 and F2 Favaucanas, which means that about 12% of our Blue Favaucanas will be black, and 12% will be "splash". The rest will be blue. Splash is a very light color, pale blue or white with "splashes" of black and darker blue in the feathers, especially in the wings and tail. Learn more about BBS genetics. Please note that a small percentage will lay a brown egg due to genetics, just as with any "easter egger.
