    I got mine from Ideal as well. Two of my girls have really dark chests and one has a light, almost peach colored chest. One of the two boys has NO fluff on his cheeks or neck! I love the poofy faces on the others!

    I got my Salmon Faverolles from Cackle Hatchery and I really like how they have turned out. They are funny hens and seems to have a very quirky personality.

    For anyone interested do not order a salmon favorolle from Mpc you will be extremely disappointed I ordered what was supposed to be a male but turned out to be a extremely ugly hen,she has a sweet personality but looks nothing like it's supposed too,but I will say they did refund me for the mistake but I was very disappointed over the quality.

    Meyer has a reputation for producing not only badly colored hens, but also ones with deformities and mental issues. I personally would not recommend ordering the breed from a hatchery, because it is an admitedly high maintenance one to breed (the genetics are difficult to maintain).

    With this breed, I would stick to BYC members. Cloverleaf has EXCELLENT birds, and I can personally attest that she is a seriously nice lady as well. I personally got my birds from a breeder in Texas, but would go to Cloverleaf the next time I need more Favs.

    Here's the hens I got:

    Very much worth getting purebreds when it comes to Favs. They can be gorgeous if the genes are good.

    I've seen very good reviews about them and I ordered 15 chicks from them to come May 21, 2013 for the first time, so I hope they're good! One more thing: I would order to a hatchery pretty close to you in warm weather to hopefully decrease DOAs.
