We currently keep Large fowl Salmon Faverolles. These birds come under the soft feather heavy classification and were originally dual purpose birds from France. However nowadays they are often seen in the show pen in large numbers and whilst they do provide excellent quality meat, these friendly birds also lay very well producing large, delicious eggs. Often becoming very tame Faverolles make excellent pets and are a pleasure to keep.

These birds are unusual in that they have five toes, (most chickens only have four), they also have partially feathered legs and feet and large beards.  

Faverolles come in several colours including: Salmon, black, blue, white, blue salmon, buff, cuckoo, mahogany and ermine. (Not all of these colours are recognised as standard colours by the british faverolles society).
