Salmon Faverolle

$2.55$3.85

Salmon Faverolle chickens are kept for their silliness and their steady egg production.  These beauties are great docile birds and a great yard bird.  The breed originated in France and became the premier meat and egg laying breed at the Paris market in the late 1800s.  The salmon color is most prominent in Europe and where available in the United States.  Their characteristics include beard, muff, 5 toes and feathered shanks.  Salmon Faverolle chickens are described as docile, gentle, and friendly.  They are not necessarily shy but don’t deal well with extremely aggressive breeds.  Due to their sweet nature, they are often kept as pets and they do well with children.  While many people keep Salmon Faverolles as exhibition birds, or as pets, they are becoming popular with small flock keepers as well.  Because they are good-tempered, dependable layers, and make good table birds, they make good members of small flocks.  They are quite suitable for colder climates.   Salmon Faverolles hens and roosters have drastically different appearances.  Hens are lighter in color, with cream, buff, straw, and copper feathering.  Roosters, though, have black, golden, and white feathering.  Salmon Faverolles roosters are sometimes small when compared to males of other breeds, but they are always stunning in appearance.
