Hello all! I am new to the forum (been lurking a while) and have questions about my birds. I live in a suburban setting and have 4 fayoumis. They are awesome, friendly, noisy, flighty, pretty birds. Our first chickens. About four months old now. They have a very nice large coop where they sleep, but insist on being free range yard chickens from 6am- 8pm. they are well guarded by my two dobermans who take the job of protecting them from predators VERY seriously ;-) So my questions are as follows.. 1) Does anyone have pics of adult fayoumis hens? I would like a size perspective. My girls seems small, and wondering how much more they will grow 2) Is there ANY way to quiet them in the am? They rise with the sun and will cluck and squak until i drag my *** out of bed and into the back to open the door to the VERY NICE coop and let them run around the yard. 3) As stated above they spend most of their time roaming around (and parked by the back door pooping on my patio) so I am worried I will not have any idea where to look for eggs. They have nest boxes in the VERY NICE coop, but somehow I doubt thats where they will lay ;-) 4) WHY DO THEY HATE THE VERY NICE COOP??? It took me a month to build that thing!!!!! Anyway... hello all! Advice on fayoumis?
