    Does anyone hatch faverolles? I've heard that the chicks are kind of delicate, but I would love to have some one day!

    Quote:I hatched one in my first hatch and one in my second. They are both doing great. I didn't notice them being any more fragile than any of my other chicks.

    If anything, Polish and Silkies would be more delicate because of their vaulted skulls.

    I've had trouble hatching them got 1 out if around 20 but they were shipped eggs so could have been the cause. The chick however is one of the robust chicks I've had and so laid back and friendly. In fact she is all the families favourite chick which say's something as we have around 30 at the moment she's always out having a cuddle even with my two year old definitely recommend getting some and the chicks are sooooo cute [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My hens just hatched out 3 chicks lastnight. Expecting more... they're pretty small, but doing ok so far.

    They seem to hatch very good for me. I not had any problems raising them either. The do seem the same as any other chick. I hatched three today and I get about 20-30 a week.

    I have some Salmon Whatchamadiggie eggs I'll be setting tonight in an incubator, which I won in an eBay auction. I'll be reporting on them (and some others, too, set yesterday!) as time goes on. (Gonna need an October Hatch-a-Long thread sooon.)

    .sorry.. I just can't figure out the correct spelling for that breed..... seen it too many different ways.

    Quote:LOL I thought for a minute there was a new type of Salmon Faverolles. I have had such pretty crosses on the Salmon Faverolles. My favorite cross I actually breed for. They are from a huge Lemon Blue Cochin Rooster X Salmon Faverolles hens. They are so cute.
