Breed of the Month: Salmon Faverolle

Faverolles are just about the coolest chickens ever!
Wacky movie stars with crazy feet, no flock is complete without these unique novelty chickens!
Juliana started out being a whitish "dirty chick" she is now desert brown with black-and-white highlights. Wow!

We just ignore it.

Our Advice:
Just pretend that your hens are fine!
