We live in a small town in Wisconsin, where having chickens running free in your yard is the "norm." Out of our five chickens, the Feyoumi is the only one we know the breed. She is a skinny little hen, and to our knowledge, has yet to lay her first egg. She is a great forager, and does well in the abundant garden that is our yard. She is the only chicken who doesn't wander off our property on a regular basis, which is perhaps a side affect of her timid personality.

PROS- Great forager
Doesn't wander
Gets along with other chickens

CONS- Flighty
Timid
Has not laid yet

Altogether a pretty good chicken. Will update with first egg...
