    I have one hen that I was told was an Egyptian. I googled it, and found some pics. One looked exactly like my hen, except mine looks a bit bigger. Anyone know how big they are supposed to be?

    Egyptian Fayoumis are supposed to be a small breed, the standard calls for hens to be around 3.5 lbs, but of course that can vary a bit from bird to bird.
