The name sounds like a cross between  a Favorelle and an Auracana.

 Best,

Says right in their ad for them:

 

 

Favaucana

Favaucanas are My Pet Chicken's exclusive new designer breed, a cross between Faverolles and Ameraucanas. They're the Goldendoodles of the chicken world: They have the sweet disposition and beautiful salmon plumage of the Faverolles, along with the lovely colored eggs and extra cold hardiness of the Ameraucanas. These beauties get the best of both worlds! Purebred Faverolles can often get bullied by other breeds in a mixed flock, but by contrast, Favaucanas fare much better in the pecking order, seemingly getting boost of self-confidence from their Ameraucana heritage. They have the excellent laying abilities from their Faverolles halves, too, and their sagey green eggs are just gorgeous! They're wonderful foragers. Plus, Favaucanas mature earlier and inherit the good winter laying capabilities of their Faverolles half. What's not to love?

 

Sound interesting.

I think they would be cute, one year I made Spitzarolles they were crazy looking. pictures are on my other computer, which crashes every I open the picture gallery. Those little Favaucana's would be so sweet.

Thank you so much for the replies!  I knew what the combination of breeds they are, I was just wondering if anyone here actually HAD one/some and if they did have one/some if they really were good layers and if the size of the eggs actually were only a medium size.

 

what are the pros and cons of large eggs vs medium eggs?  are there any?

 

Thanks again!
