    Breed Details:
    The Faverolle breed is a calm, gentle breed. They are a very curious breed. I have read that Faverolles are fragile chicks, but in my experience this has not been the case. They have been very easy to hatch, brood, and raise. They lay around 160-180 eggs per year. They lay medium sized tinted or salmon colored eggs. They are an easy breed to keep and raise. All of the faverolles I have had, have been quiet birds. But I have heard from others that they can be very noisy.
