German favorella bantam ; In 1922 the first attempts to breed a dwarf breed began in Dresden. The biggest challenge was that the cock and hen are colored differently. The exact breeding route is not known. In breeding circles it is assumed that a small-sized rooster of the large breed was mated with light-colored dwarf Brahma hens. Other feathered bantam breeds probably also flowed into the dwarf salmon chicken.
In 1929 the first faverolle bantam were presented in Leipzig. The faverolle bantam chickens is more common than the large breed, which has unfortunately become rare and is on the red list of endangered livestock breeds.
Faverolles bantam has dense, soft plumage. The cute animals with the hamster cheeks are naturally human and like to cuddle.
- Rooster: 1300g
- Hen: 1000g
