About Egyptian Fayoumi ChickensAbout Egyptian Fayoumi Chickens

EgyptianrnFayoumis are an ancient Chicken that originated in the Nile Valley. They have arernpretty and unique appearance. They hold their tails upright--nearlyrnvertical--and have especially long, graceful necks. They are decent layers ofrnsmallish, cream, or tinted eggs. rnrn 

rnrnEgyptianrnFayoumis are one of the most early maturing of chicken breeds: hens can beginrnlaying eggs as early as 4-1/2 or 5 months. Fayoumis are known to be naturallyrnresistant to Marek's Disease and to many other illnesses. However, they arernnormally fairly nervous in temperament, and can be feather pickers if theyrndon't have enough room to roam. They can be territorial about their favoriternnesting spots, and roosters are noisy. They are also fliers, so are not alwaysrnthe best choice for a backyard flock since they can and will clear most fences.rnWith plenty of room, however, they can be a good choice for a small farm, sincernthey are good foragers, economical eaters, independent, tough, aware of theirrnsurroundings and good at avoiding predators.
