About Faverolles ChickensAbout Faverolles Chickens

Faverolles Chickensrnare a utility fowl from France. The French crossed several breeds to creaternthem. They mature early, produce a fine textured meat, and lay four eggs a weekrnor 170 medium-sized, creamy or salmon colored eggs per year. They lay well inrnthe winter months. Their downy feathers equip them to endure cold. Faverolles chickensrnseldom go broody. Owners report that Faverolles roosters rank as some of thernmost docile cocks in poultry world. Both hen and rooster make ideal pets.rnrnrnrn

rnrnFaverolles arernsweet, docile, and personable. In a mixed flock Faverolles chickens usuallyrnappear at the bottom of the pecking order. Their non-aggressive manner carriesrnover to people as well. Faverolles chickens accept a newcomer to the flockrnwithout fanfare or confrontation. Quiet and calm the Faverolles roosterrnembodies the very picture of rural repose. They have a lordly appearance but arndignified disposition. By all accounts the Faverolles qualifies as the perfectrnpet and backyard chicken.rnrn

rnrnrnrnFavorolles havernten different plumages; however, the poultry world generally associatesrnFaverolles with the Salmon variety. The hens wear white feathers on the body,rnbreast, and throat. Salmon feathers adorn the top of the hackles, shells,rnwings, and tail. Faverolles hens look a little daffy with loose feathering,rnfull beards and muffs, feathered feet, and five toes. Faverolles roosters, onrnthe other hand, look altogether different and altogether dignified. Peter F.rnMerlin in his article “The Fabulous Faverolles” describes the Faverollesrnrooster “as the peacock of the poultry world.” The rooster has a iridescentrndark breast and tail, white hackles and shell feathers, and bronze wings lacedrnin white. A Faverolles rooster and hen look like an elegant butler accompaniedrnby his brassy, blond companion.rnrn

rnrnrnrnFaverolles likernto forage. Give them ample room. Poor fliers, the Faverolles need only lowrnfencing to protect them from predators. Keep the run dry. Although they copernwell with damp grass, Faverolles tend to suffer from Scaly Leg mite. Feed arngood quality layer feed to take advantage of their utility status. They canrnhandle cold weather but will still appreciate a warm coop. Keep Faverolles awayrnfrom other breeds. Their submissive disposition renders them easy targets fromrnmore aggressive fowl.
