do i have a faverolle?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

hi. im Armin and i live in Iran. i would really appreciate if you could help me find out what breed of chicken i have:)

 

her name is Julie.

she is very calm and loves to be cuddled. never moves away from human and shes very easy to be picked up (well u know what i mean) . and i think she is very old and she has not laid any single egg yet.(old chickens don't lay eggs?). she is very quiet during the day ( except in the morning!) and her voice is bold like a duck or something, but very lovely:) , from what i read here about faverolles, she really matches with their characteristic and looks but she has 4 fingers so im confused... ( here only polish, sultan , brahmas and some other types are known to the bird shops i went and nobody seems to be knowing about faverolles)

 

i saw her 2 months ago in a rural shop that sold chicken for their meat and she was in a very bad condition so i decided to buy her and keep her as a pet. i bought her about 8$ ( very cheaper than i expected , maybe because she was old?)

she got cold recently but we cured her and now shes good, but it seems like she lost weight, to me.

 

i give her proper food ( all that was mentioned in the website ) and try to keep her happy but i am very new to keeping chickens and im still learning.:)

 

 

 

 

 

 

she has 4 fingers ( faverolles have 5 right?)

her coop (made in house! took 2 days for me and my dad)

we keep her there only at nights or when its raining.

she sometimes takes a nap just like that on the swing

Hello, Armin, welcome to BYC.  She's a very pretty hen perhaps with some Faverolle DNA, but she is not a purebred Faverolle.

I agree.     But, she does have some faverolle traits,   the beard, the fluffy cheeks, the  feathered feet.

I agree.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
