I love this product. I cannot believe no one has reviewed it yet. I started with the chick version- and moved up to this. While at work all day, I wanted to keep my girls busy. This product is...
I bought one of these when I first got my birds- I have since converted it to an oyster-shell dispenser- works wonderfully for that function in my coop. This past summer, I bought a second one to...
A very good book. It's full of very useful information, pictures, and tips. I'd recommend it.
I think this waterer is great. It only holds 2 gallons of water so if you're a younger, older or out of shape it's not too much work to carry from the hose to the coop. It's it's very easy to fill...

Most favs don't scratch much, if at all, but... it can be a learned behavior from watching other chickens take the lead. Both my silkies and my favs do scratch, which is not typical for the breeds. I'm pretty sure it's been a learned behavior from being raised with leghorn chicks.Educator, wife, mother, cat-lover, and keeper of Leghorns, Marans, RIR, Ameraucanas, Salmon Faverolles, Silkies, and Easter Eggers, plus various other mixed breeds.Educator, wife, mother, cat-lover, and keeper of Leghorns, Marans, RIR, Ameraucanas, Salmon Faverolles, Silkies, and Easter Eggers, plus various other mixed breeds.post #16585 of 167355/27/16 at 10:13am
My salmon favorelle chick! She has quickly become one of out favorites in terms of temperament and personality! She walks right into your hand and falls asleep. I had her out in the garden with me yesterday when I was planting beans, she stayed fairly close trying to me eat the bugs out of the holes I was digging :)post #16586 of 167355/28/16 at 3:28pmQuote:
I would say I have never noticed a difference from my other birds.
Thank you! She is 4 this year and still a looker!post #16587 of 167355/29/16 at 5:53am
In my experience, Favs are a quite passive breed in most aspects. In a mixed flock they are the least aggressive and most apt to be picked on. When I put them on grass, they do the least amount of scratching as my other birds. (Welsummers & Erminettes). They seem to be more comfortable in their permanent runs, than out and about - judging by egg laying performance. Its possible some lines are more aggressive foragers, I just haven't seen it with mine.post #16588 of 167355/30/16 at 9:57pmQuote:
After chatting to the breeder I've since figured out she's from a silver laced Faverolles project that has been discontinued.post #16589 of 167355/30/16 at 10:40pm3 cats and 8 young feathered friends - 2 buff orps, 2 gold laced dottes, 2 speckled sussex, and 2 salmon faverolles.3 cats and 8 young feathered friends - 2 buff orps, 2 gold laced dottes, 2 speckled sussex, and 2 salmon faverolles.post #16590 of 167356/3/16 at 3:31pmMy husband and I are getting chickens next spring. We're taking the time to educate ourselves, have our backyard landscape (being professional done now), buying a GREAT coop, and build both a brooder and chicken run. What docile chickens will get along with Favarolles? I don't want to raise bullies.
