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 ...
