Breed Traits

Faverolles have a unique collection of odd physical traits from their different forebears: white skin, white legs, face muffling, beard, feathered feet, and five toes. They also have a single comb – which is not commonly paired with face muffling. They are known for having the tête de hibou, or “head of an owl.” 

Breed History

Faverolles were created in the communities of Faverolle and Houdan in northern France in mid-1800 and their development is directly tied to their ability to lay eggs. They were created for increased egg production and meat, and became popular because they adapted to life in battery-type cages.
