Egyptian Fayoumis are a very common Egyptian chicken raised along the Nile River for centuries which lay tinted white eggs. They mature very fast with males trying to crow at an unbelievable 5 to 6 weeks. Feathering is silver and white on black background. They have a single comb, bright red wattles, white spot in their ear lobes and slate blue skin. They are very hardy foragers, do well free-range and they are better at flying than most chickens. The Egyptian Fayoumis chicken is noted for being a predator resistant chicken to run on your farm or acreage. They also do well within a large pen or barn and like to roost as high as they can.
