These hens will be 3+ months old and will lay in the next few weeks if they aren't already laying.

Faverolles are one of our favorite chicken breeds. They're wonderfully odd-looking, with muffs, a beard, feathered feet and five toes. Salmon Faverolles are the most commonly available variety. Hens are beautiful, with snowy breasts and fluffy white faces: their backs are a lovely honeyed salmon color with white lacing. The hens lay medium-sized light brown or creamy eggs in prolific numbers, and they are good winter layers, too. They are shy and sweet-natured, but so docile that they tend to find themselves at the bottom of the pecking order in a mixed flock. We often see ours asking to be picked up and held.

They mature at 28 weeks and produce 275-300 light brown/pink eggs per year.

Laying/Almost Laying age birds typically need to be grown out and may take as long as 4 months before they are ready for you to pick up. Please feel free to contact us for what other ages we may have available.
