    My Favacauna named Raven is the nicest thing, and she lays a large green egg nearly every day. Her feathers have a beautiful blue shine and I absolutely love her feather cheeks. [​IMG] If you are looking to get one of these chickens, know that they won't be on the bottom of the pecking order, as mine has managed to become the most dominant of my flock. One thing that apparently faverolles do (faverolles are in her blood) is a loud peep when they want something, and Raven is no exception. Whenever I have forgotten to give the flock a treat, she will angrily peep at me as if in protest. Another thing about this breed is their extra fifth toe. Sometimes it can creep me out a little, but thats probably me just being overly sensitive.

    Overall. the Favacauna is a wonderful breed, and I can promise, you won't be disappointed with them!

    "Very sweet bird, doesn't mind being carried..."
    Pros - Lays more eggs than I expected. Friendly. And oh so pretty!
    Cons - None that we have seen.
    We received our one and only Favacauna from MyPetChicken and will definitely never be without one. We completely adore her! She is almost as docile and friendly as any Silkie. "Hope" is supposed to be the Wheaten color but she is mostly white with white legs, small, clean faced and usually lays at least 5 mint green eggs a week. As small as she is I would expect her eggs to be smaller but I would say they are somewhere between medium and large. I can't speak for the roosters but the hens are awesome! She is near the bottom of the pecking order but no worse for wear. Definitely a must in our very diverse flock!
