Faverolle

Faverolle

 

a breed of dual-purpose chicken. The Faverolle was developed in the second half of the 19th century in France, near the city of Faverolles, by crossing the Houdan, Dorking, Brahma, and Cochin breeds. The plumage is most often salmoncolored, although it may be white, black, or barred. The male weighs 3.6–4.5 kg, and the female, 3–4 kg. Annual egg production varies from 110 to 130 pinkish yellow eggs, weighing 55–65 g each. The Faverolle is used to improve the meat quality of other breeds and strains. It is raised in France, Great Britain, and other countries; in the USSR it is raised by individuals.

Species-specific variations must be considered, like the shortened tibiotarsus and chondrodystrophic bones in the Japanese bantam, silkie, and Chabo chickens (Fig lb); the development of a helmet-like structure in the Polish chicken and the crested duck; and the manifold variations in hind limb anatomy, like Polydactyly in Faverolle chickens (Fig 2b) and the typical metatarsal spur of male game birds (Fig 10).
