The Origin of Salmon Faverolles Large Fowl.
Salmon Faverolles originated in a village called Faverolle in France, they were imported to Britain in 1886. They are classed as heavy soft feather.
The Salmon Faverolle
A lovely gentle friendly natured chicken with many bonuses. The female's barn owl like appearance and the male's striking stature make these birds a lovely and unusual addition to any small flock.
They are excellent egg layers and will match even the best pure bred egg layers. Their eggs are of good size usually a creamy/pink in colour.
With the male and female looking so totally different to each other, they have the advantage of being easy to sex at an early age.
Salmon Faverolles make excellent show birds as they will always stand out in a crowd.
These birds have sadly often been overlooked due to their lack of breeders, but more recently their popularity is growing as their excellent qualities are realised.
We are currently breeding from 2 bloodlines of salmon faverolle L/F.
Young stock will be available from August 2018 onwards at a cost of £2 per week of age, therefore a 12 week old bird would cost £24.00.
We attend at least 3 or 4 shows a year with our faverolles in which we normally do ok.
We have also created from our own bloodlines over the last 10 years,
