Originated in the village of Faverolle, in Northern France, during the second half of the nineteenth century. This breed was created for its dual purpose qualities. Its make‑up includes such breeds as the Dorking, Houdan and Cochin, Light Brahma, Polish, Crevecoeur, and the European Five Toed Fowl. Imported into Great Britain in 1886 and to Germany a decade later. Both French and German varieties were imported into South Africa, but now it appears that the German variety (Lachshuhn) dominates our show benches. Judges of this breed should be aware of both breed directions when judging this breed.
