    Looking to buy Mahogany Faverolles. Preferably live birds and not eggs. We have tried ordering from Sandhill preservation and have had horrible luck. We ordered some for April and they didnt get them and finally got an email from them 4 months later after trying to get in contact with them for months and they werent able to hatch any. In that order we also bought guineas and we still got them but they were very very sick and we have lost about 90% of the order. So now we are looking for other breeders of Mahogany Faverolles because we refuse to order from Sandhill ever again.

    In two different batches of Sandhill's Mah. Faverolles, never again! All of them died before they reached egg laying stage. We had a heck of a time trying to keep them alive and so did my friend who shared the order.

    Just ask around in the Faverolles section and I am sure there would be a few that raises Mahogany colored ones.

    Good luck, I'll keep an eye out for you though. [​IMG] I've yet to see a TRUE Mahogany Faverolle in the US, honestly. Lots of people sell poorly colored Salmon Faverolles under false claim.
