A very common Egyptian fowl (chicken) raised along the Nile River for centuries, Egyptian Fayoumis chickens 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.
