History

Faverolle Chickens orginated by breeding Dorkings, Houdans and Asiatices in the French village, Faverolle. They were initally bred for utility. The main object of the faverolle chicken is winter eggs and heavy table poulty. They were created as a dual purpose breed and were imported into England in 1886 where they were used for crossing with other breeds to produce excellent table fowl. The Dorking and Houdan ancestry can be detected by the fact they have five toes. They have large beards and muffling around the face.

Characteristics

The Faverolle Chickens lay tinted eggs rather than white shelled eggs that other french poultry tends to.
