Egyptian Fayoumis are a very common Egyptian chicken raised along the Nile River in Eqypt for centuries which lay small white eggs. They mature very fast with males trying to crow at an unbelievable early age. The breed shows remarkable resistance to viral and bacterial disease and infection. Feathering is silver and white on black background. Egyptian Fayoumis Roosters have a silver-white plumage on the head, neck, back, and saddle against their black and white barred bodies. Hens look much the same except they lack white plumage on the saddle. Egyptian Fayoumis have a single red comb, red wattles, and red earlobes with one white spot, 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.
