One of the biggest challenges of raising and caring for chickens is keeping them at the right temperature.

When most people think about chickens, they don’t envision birds with feathers covering their feet.

Feathered feet provide important warmth to the chicken whether they’re out walking around or sleeping in the coop.

Faverolles do well in free-range environments or coop living. These are also popular birds for meat if that’s something you do with your chickens.
