|Designated as a "critical" poultry breed by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy,
the Salmon Faverolle is a hearty, calm and attractive chicken. Known for their feathered,
five-toed feet, the roosters, in particular, have lovely plumage.
The hens lay brown eggs and are considered a dual purpose bird. Ours roam free-range in
the pasture during the day and spend nights in their coop.
|Roosters are typically quite protective of the hens, and
Jacques Le Coq is no exception.
Hugo and Harriet -
Are they chickens or barn cats?
The chickens don't seem to
mind sharing the coop ...
