Super friendly and referred to as the “puppies of the chicken world”, the Salmon Faverolle is a fantastic breed. They enjoy socializing with everyone and will run right up to you, treats or not. If you are looking to eventually have naturally incubated and raised chicks, these chickens make amazing mothers. The laid-back nature makes them great around children and other pets but you have to keep this in mind with other chicken breeds as they will often be at the bottom of the pecking order. These friendly hens lay an average of 180 to 240 medium to large light brown eggs per year. The roosters weigh around 8 pounds when fully matured and the hens will reach around 6.5 pounds. The Salmon Faverolle is not an APA-recognized breed. With proper care and enrichment, this breed lives 5 to 7 years on average. No matter what breed you fancy, our baby chicks for sale are happy and healthy. Valley Hatchery wants to make buying chicks online an enjoyable experience for beginners and pros alike.
