Originating in France in the 1850’s, the Salmon Faverolle is a good dual purpose chicken being both a good layer and a large size bird. The Salmon Faverolle chicken has a calm and docile personality which makes them a favorite chicken for backyards. Their characteristics include beard or called muff, 5 toes and feathered shanks. They are not the strongest chicks we offer and can get dehydrated quickly during shipping. So be sure to have your brooder ready and all warmed up and baby them on arrival. They lay a light brown egg and some might call it a peachy egg shell color. As adults don’t build roosting poles that are too high for them and always beware that they have that 5th toe that can be damaged easily if it gets caught by the wire fencing.
We also offer at limited times of the year Salmon Faverolle Fertile Hatching Eggs
