    So funny I say this post. I was wondering the same thing. And I did think they were fat with rolls. A very chubby chicken. So cute.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] Just ran into this. You funny people. They are cute though. I have also heard it Fav ariolelE Like FAV Ariel Leo something where after the person gets the Fav out the rest gets lost in translation. Who would have thunk it!!!

    Thanks for the disambiguation. I was *corrected* by a breeder who called them "fav-or-lays", and thought to myself, "No, wait, that can't be right!?" I thought I was pronouncing it correctly. :)

    I don't know if it's right but I say it FA as in father and VER as in very; RO as in row the lles as the ye in yes. The word is french in orrigin and I speak spanish so I know in spanish the LL is pronounced as we pronounce ll in million with kind of a ye sound but again I'm not sure. I've heard it said in some pretty wild ways.

    I lost both of mine to predators this year. They were such sweet, shy girls. I will miss them a lot.

    The French pronunciation = Fahv ah hole or Fah vah ole where the r and the s are both silent seems to be most accurate, but here in the states, we like to come up with our own versions!
