Twelve Days of Shoe Shopping #3: Hens/Beyla

On the third day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Three French hens
But which breed? According to the BBC, there are four major breeds of French hens: Faverolles, La Fleche, Crevecoeurs and Marans. The most practical breed for winter gastronomie is the favorelle, which is a winter egg-laying machine. For those who are inclined to favor style over utility, the Marans is a groovy bird. Even that perennial epitome of cool, James Bond, couldn’t resist the Marans’ chocolate brown eggs.
