Salmon Faverolles Chicken
This is one of our most favorite breeds here on the farm. They are beautiful, docile, friendly and hardy. The roosters love to get attention, follow us around, and like to sit on our laps. Nervous about having a rooster? This is the one to get. Majestic, big and friendly, keeping the ladies in line, offering them treats but not harming them or their caretakers. They are wonderful for families and integrate well with other flock members or situations. They tend to be on the low end of the flock hierarchy, due to their docile nature, so don’t put them in with very aggressive birds. If introducing other chickens to the flock, this breed takes newcomers in without question. They also bare confinement well. They are a dual-purpose breed, meaning you can use them for both egg and meat production, they were developed in Paris for that purpose! I have heard that the Salmon Faverolles are one of the best tasting birds!
They do well in all weather conditions and very well in our harsh Vermont weather. The roosters combs can get frostbite so pay close attention to that. This breed is on the Livestock Conservation List as endangered and part of their purchase goes to helping Heritage Breeds. Please help us in keeping this gentle giant alive and well. We breed the Salmon colored Faverolles, which is not easy to do, the Salmon colorings are difficult and can change. Maintaining the salmon coloring is challenging. Faverolles chickens come in many color varieties, but The American Poultry Association, only recognizes the Salmon and the White varieties. The White variety was developed and refined about 1905. When most people think of the Faverolles breed it is the Salmon variety that they are thinking of. Salmon is a unique color pattern found exclusively on the Faverolles chicken. We are members of the Faverolles Club of the US and strive to meet the standard of perfection with our flock.
chickens are medium-sized, with deep compact bodies, feathered legs,toes, and beards. With their “fluffy” appearance, it is easy to overlook the fact that this breed was developed with meat production and winter egg laying with the great Paris market in mind. chickens combine early maturity, hardiness, and great egg-laying with those meat qualities we talked about. During the 1900s it was considered the best French breed yet produced. hens lay tinted tan eggs and are excellent sitters and mothers. They can go broody often. They are great pets, good with families and children.
The Faverolles chicken breed takes its name from the village of Faverolles, just southwest of Paris, France. The breed was developed by crossing many other chicken breeds and then selecting for production qualities alone. Breeds used in its development were the Houdan, Brahma, French Rennes, Flemish Cuckoo, Malines, and Dorking. For many years Faverolles chickens were a varied and mixed, but by about 1886 a distinct type emerged and some consistency in plumage color materialized. The breed was introduced into England in 1894 and was imported into America by Dr. A.H. Phelps of Glen Falls, NY, in 1901 or 1902. In America, the breed met with much enthusiasm.
Feed Recommendations: we recommend starting baby chicks out with Sugar Feather Farm chick starter for the first 3 weeks, then switch to our Chicken Grower. Use the Grower Feed until they hit maturation (which is when they start to lay) then switch to Sugar Feather Farm Adult Feed.
We highly recommend using the Oil of Oregano in their water daily as a supplement to aid with digestion and overall health. We use this every day.
