    She looks so adorable! She has the better traits of each of her parents, the nice beard/muffs from her momma and a similar type to her dads. When are the eggs due to hatch from the breeder?

    Quote:Hello katylester,

    My Faverolle pullet is the sweetest bird. She's also goofy. She runs into things sometimes and I think it's because her peripheral vision is affected by the muffy cheeks. She is a bit nervous, but this is most likely due to being the only Faverolle and sometimes the other birds do pick on her a bit.

    Wow so you have three broody hens right now? What eggs are you tempted to let lacey set on? Just kidding. Its always exciting when you hatch chicks for the first time. I am so tempted to order a few to help me get through the winter, lol. I just have to keep telling myself that I will be able to get ducklings in a month or so.

    She has the build and type of beard of a Faverolle which thats great. The coloring is a little darker than normal. Otherwise she is beautiful!
