Three French Hens: The Faverolles of Birdorable's Holiday Cheer

Three Birdorable French Hens

On the third day of Birdorable, /meet/faverolles ... 3 French Hens! Our festive 12 Days of Birdorable celebration takes a delightful turn today as we introduce the first-ever Birdorable chicken, the Faverolles. This French breed of chicken, with its distinctively colorful plumage and endearing personality, adds a touch of rustic elegance to our holiday lineup.

The "Three French Hens" from the beloved "The 12 Days of Christmas" carol are brought to life in the form of the Faverolles, a breed that encapsulates the essence of French countryside charm. Known for their unique appearance, cock Faverolles boast a striking black and white coloration, while the hens, the stars of our Birdorable moment, display a beautiful range of salmon-colored to creamy white feathers.

Faverolles are known for their docile and friendly nature, making them a favorite among poultry enthusiasts and backyard chicken keepers alike. These birds have a distinctive look, with fluffy feathers, beards, and feathered feet, adding to their appeal and making them one of the most recognizable chicken breeds.

The story of the Faverolles, with its blend of French elegance and homely charm, is a perfect addition to our holiday celebration. Let these Birdorable French Hens inspire warmth and joy as we continue our journey through the 12 Days of Birdorable.

This is the third day of our 12 Days of Birdorable holiday event. Previously featured were:

Over the next 9 days we will post another Birdorable bird for our 12 Days of Birdorable. Be sure to check back each day for this fun event!
