Welcome to the world of Faverolles! I am not familiar with MMH's Faverolles. You should post pictures of them as they grow. There is a Faverolles thread here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/268082/faverolles-thread/16390 We would love to see what you get. For giggles a couple of years ago I raised a few Meyer (I think) Faverolles chicks along with my breeder birds. The Meyer chicks were decent for hatchery stock. Only a few with smutty beards, most had decent type. A definite improvement over the awful colored pullets in the past. They were half the size of my breeder pullets however. Not surprising since hatcheries concentrate on egg laying instead of the whole package. The pullets weighed around 4 lbs, while mine were closer to 7-8. Faverolles can be difficult to breed. I know you are just trying to improve on what you get for local fairs, so I hope you don't mind a little advice on trying to select your breeders. If any of your chicks have side sprigs on the comb, or extra toes/nails, you can remove them right off. When your chicks are 4 months or so old you can pick out your keeper pullets. If you can, select the ones with the cleanest fronts and beards, as well as the widest heads and bodies. Tight wings of course, and preferably good toes if possible. Cockerels take forever to mature and will likely look messy color-wise for months. Being hatchery stock hopefully they will mature faster than mine. Similar to pullets, select the ones with the widest heads andbodies and good wing placement. Try to pick ones that have the mahogany color that extends all the way to the tail (it will help prevent getting 2-toned pullets later). Clean fronts are preferable as well (no red/silver bleed through on the front). And after time if you decide you want to keep breeding Faverolles, and want to move onto APA shows, then see if you can find some breeder stock to add to the mix.
