    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    Eid al-Fash is the religions festival of Christians wherein the egg is decorated and presented under a special belief; thus if this egg is of any halal bird yet it should not be eaten. (For details see: Al-Fatawa al-Kubra, for Ibn Taymiya, Fatawa al-Azhar, etc.)
