    Here is our 12 week old Egyptian Fayoumi, Ray. She is hyper but lovable. They are hard to handle, but worth it! What do your chicks act like?

    My buttercups were very fiesty early on and still won't let me pick them up except for extreme situations when they are 100% cornered and have no choice.
    They started flying around as soon as they could.

    Edit:
    Forgot about this picture, here's Ivy at about 5-6 weeks.

  6. Quote:ours is very hyper as well. Her and the buttercup or what I think is a buttercup seem to fight over the top of the pecking order. Yesterday I moved them in with 13 RIR and they are now in charge

    Quote:Well it's certainly possible I'm wrong about the breed, but I just assumed the comb would grow in. The coloring is exactly like all the pictures of buttercups I've seen. They are only about 14 weeks right now.

    Anyone know what it would be if not a buttercup?

    Do you have a better pic of the comb? It sure does look like a Buttercup in every other instance (from what I see at Feathersite)

    By the way, your new frizzle roo is gorgeous! Saw him on your blog [​IMG]

    Tomstephens, are you sure they are not Golden Campines, which is what they look an awful lot like to me from what I can see of the comb?

    Fayoumi, campine and buttercup chicks seem to look pretty similar from what pictures I've seen (I only have golden campines so can't compare from personal experience).

    Mine are nutbars like everyone else is describing, but fun to watch [​IMG]
