This French breed of chicken was developed in 1860 near a place called Faverolles. They were developed to be a dual purpose bird although today they are primarily used for show. They lay a large quantity of medium size cream colored eggs. Being a bit of a loner they are a very quiet personality and need to be in an unmixed flock because they tend to be at the bottom of the pecking order. They are very fluffy with a beard and muffs. They also have 5 toes with feathered feet. Very fun to watch. They can handle confinement and are a good bird around humans.
