This study was conducted at Chittagong Government Veterinary College Pahartali, Chittagong to know the productive performance of Fayoumi chicken under intensive management. The Fayoumi pullets were collected from the Regional Government Poultry Farm, Pahartali, Chittagong, Bangladesh. The age and weight of each chicken were recorded at the laying of first egg and obtained the age and weight at sexual maturity was 163.63±1.17 days and 1253.11±16.42 g, respectively. Daily egg production was recorded from the onset of lay upto one year and the yearly egg production per hen was obtained 140.72. Eggs were weighted and the average egg weight was obtained 45.79 g.
