    hi. im Armin and i live in Iran. i would really appreciate if you could help me find out what breed of chicken i have:)

    her name is Julie.
    she is very calm and loves to be cuddled. never moves away from human and shes very easy to be picked up (well u know what i mean) . and i think she is very old and she has not laid any single egg yet.(old chickens don't lay eggs?). she is very quiet during the day ( except in the morning!) and her voice is bold like a duck or something, but very lovely:) , from what i read here about faverolles, she really matches with their characteristic and looks but she has 4 fingers so im confused... ( here only polish, sultan , brahmas and some other types are known to the bird shops i went and nobody seems to be knowing about faverolles)

    i saw her 2 months ago in a rural shop that sold chicken for their meat and she was in a very bad condition so i decided to buy her and keep her as a pet. i bought her about 8$ ( very cheaper than i expected , maybe because she was old?)
    she got cold recently but we cured her and now shes good, but it seems like she lost weight, to me.

    i give her proper food ( all that was mentioned in the website ) and try to keep her happy but i am very new to keeping chickens and im still learning.:)

    Hello, Armin, welcome to BYC. She's a very pretty hen perhaps with some Faverolle DNA, but she is not a purebred Faverolle.

    I agree. But, she does have some faverolle traits, the beard, the fluffy cheeks, the feathered feet.
