This is a Blue Salmon Favorolle bantam hatchling. This is a breed we want to raise. We think this is a pullet so hopefully she will develop into one of our first brood hens. We also have a full sister to her.
Faverolles were developed in France in the early 1800's. Although rare, Faverolles are enjoying an increased popularity among backyard flock owners. The most popular type of this chicken breed is the Salmon Faverolle. The Faverolle (Faverolles) rooster is straw, black and reddish colored, while the Faverolle hen has creamy white and salmon colored feathers. The Blue Salmon Favorolles hens are the same color but the roosters are blue where the salmons are black. Gorgeous coloring.
Faverolles are hardy in both the heat and cold, and are very docile and friendly. Faverolles lay medium sized off-white to creamy tinted eggs.
