Fowl - Rare Breeds - Faverolle (2) Find breeders of rare Faverolle chooks. Faverolles are a duel purpose breed (eggs and meat) that are named for their place of origin, the town of Faverolles in France. They are extremely rare in Australia, with only about 100 people currently breeding them. This is why the Faverolles Australia club has been formed, to publicise the breed and increase the numbers throughout Australia to make sure this rare breed does not face extinction. The birds come in two sizes, large and bantam, and there are only seven or eight colours, with Salmon being the main one. See Clubs this section for contact details for the Faverolles Australia club.
