Ah, don't forget to add the British Faverolles. :p

All 3 are different in type. This is a German site (exceptionally informative, not sure how well Google Translate would work), but at the bottom there are old illustrations of the body types. Left to right: French, British, German.

And yes, all 3 standards allow different colors, some they have in common.
Lol I just discovered them last night!

Thank you for the link! Google couldn't translate it but it appears all 3 of mine are...German. Fascinating, if only I could read more of it!

I'm trying to get through this thread but in the meantime maybe you all can help me. I saw a picture of SF over the summer and ever since then I've been trying to to get my hands on some! I bought 3 from a local Npip breeder at 2 weeks old and they all died within a week of bringing them home. I think they had MG as my rooster came down with that a couple weeks after I brought them home. Then a few weeks later Meyer had an over hatch and I was able to snag 3 more! Except the post office lost the box for 24 hours and one SF was DOA and one had curl toes and died overnight. I have one left and hopefully nothing happens to her! I want to get a couple more as well as some LF cochins and LF brahmas in the spring. I don't show or breed and sell so I don't need them to meet the standard but I love how fat and fluffy they are so I want big fluffy ones. I'm thinking I'll order from Murray McMurray ...can anyone advise if their SF are any good for pet quality? If not, are there any hatcheries you guys would recommend?

Thanks rshumpal the photos really help! MPC didn't have much and their reviews were older. If they breed their own SF then they're the closet hatchery to me!

Trevorusn have you seen the price though?! I got a green queen from Meyer that looks like she must be a "favaucana" and she's super cute...has a little mohawk right now. They're much more reasonably priced but not guaranteed to look like this. The only reason I wouldn't reorder from Meyers again is because they sent me a deformed chick which they should have caught. Their customer service was great though.

Hi everyone :)

I've been advised that this handsome boy is a Faverolles. He was a buddy for a single chick I got from someone and of course, was supposed to be a pullet. He's my first of this breed, I love those cheeks and beard!

Yes that is definitely a roo. He’s a pretty boy! I have a no that looks to be about the same age as yours. Are you still going to keep him?
