The Evdilos Ikaria breed was first mentioned in the 1960s. It was bred on the island of Ikaria and in particular the Evdilos region after which it was named. Despite efforts by the ‘Amalthia Network’ to establish two nuclei, very few pure specimens remain in small domestic groups of 4-5 animals and isolated individuals scattered among larger (mixed) herds.
The Evdilos Ikaria breed is a medium to large-sized, even-woolled and semi-fat-tailed sheep.
Status classified as 'Critical' (2019).
