    i looked thru the whole catalog at mcmurray hatchery and i could nt find one that fit... except a cochin.. but,, well im not sure... what is it?


    it has feathers on its feet, and kinda puffy cheeks,, its about the same size as my jersey giant chicks that came in
    . it also has these kinda grayish patches on its back and head.

    Faverolles have single comb, beard and muff, feathered feed, and 5 toes.

    HenMama, I am 18, I learned by reading and from experience. We breed faverolles. I have basically read the standard and know most of the breed standards, I plan on being an APA judge one day. Thanks for the compliment.
