Pros: Very Sweet, Gorgeous birds, cute fuzzy faces, low pecking order, hardy in cold once fully adult, slower moving/easier to catch
Cons: not very hardy as chicks or as "teens", smaller eggs, low pecking order
I absolutely adore Faverolles, they are such super sweet birds. They are nice and calm and perfect for confinement. They are not good at protecting themselves from predators, but I also don't think they are very destructive in the garden.
They are so mellow, and always so very beautiful and at the same time adorably cute with their fuzzy faces that I want to always have at least a few in my flock, though the ones I have had in the past laid a smallish egg.
As chicks and "teens" they are not very robust. At those ages you have to watch them closely and maybe still expect to loose one.
They are laid back and mellow enough, that I would like to try a rooster of this breed some day.
