Japanese Chickenpresents one of the extremes of the Bantam World. The disproportionately large comb, head, wings and tail of the male and the remarkable shortness of legs are obvious characteristics. Japanese Chicken male tail is further distinguished by the long sword-shaped main sickles carried slightly forward of the perpendicular, accentuating the typical shape. Known as Chabo in Europe they come in a number of colours, and can even have silkie feathering.
