    I have one salmon Faverolles pullet. She was born around August 2008. She began laying in December and has laid an egg nearly every day since then. She lays medium-sized tinted eggs. Faverolles are known as a dual-purpose bird so they are supposed to be suitable as a meat bird and an egg layer.

    Since the Faverolles is such a docile bird, beautiful, and a good layer I've obtained a dozen fertilized Faverolle eggs that are due to hatch in about four or five days. If I have a few more of these hens I'll never need to buy eggs again. [​IMG]

    My three litte Faverolles are sweet and great layers. The eggs are not white but they are not tan...they are a light cream color.

    My Faverolle rooster is the sweetest guy too. Im not sure he is such a great protector, but he has never been mean to human or fowl.

    When we had our faverolles they both layed pretty good. About as many eggs as an EE, maybe more.
