Egyptian Fayoumi

Just about as feral a chicken as you can find. Lightweight, independent-minded and aggressive foragers, they are the Delta forces of tick eating chickens. They come in charcoal gray/silvery white camoflage feathering. Egyptian Fayoumis are also surprisingly good layers of small ivory tinted eggs. They seem to have originated in the Nile delta, where there is a city named Fayoum.
