Cikta sheep were brought to Hungary, in the 18th century, by
German settlers. While they grow wool they are primarily raised for meat. They
belong to the Mountain Group of sheep breeds.
They are white (unicolored). The rams have horns and the
ewes are polled (hornless), and their ears are erect. Typically, their horns
are small or knob-like.
At maturity, rams weigh 37 kg (82 lb) and ewes weigh 45 kg
(99 lb). At the withers, rams grow to 55 cm (22 in) and ewes to 47 cm (19 in).
Ewes have an average 1.1 lambs per litter.
