Pros: fairly consistent layer of small light eggs
Cons: LOUD, loner, socially awkward
My Salmon Faverolle doesn't seem to fit in well with my mixed flock of seven hens (two Australorps, two Brahmas, one Sussex, one Welsumer). She sometimes hangs out with them, but often stays near the coop by herself while the rest go foraging. She's super loud, sounding like I imagine a pterodactyl would sound, and doesn't seem to have the range of noises the other hens have. She caws like a crow!
She's also kind of neurotic, not wanting to be handled. She sometimes runs away from people contact, and sometimes stands her ground but pecks at you if you get close. She's docile once picked up. It's hard to explain, but she just doesn't act like the other chickens, like maybe she's got a screw loose. It could definitely just be her and not Faverolles in general, since the only other one I had died at less than a week old.
She went broody for a couple of months at just about 1 year old, but now is laying fairly consistently even though most of the other girls have stopped (it's mid-November). So we're grateful for her little eggs, but I don't think I'd get another Faverolle.
