About Phoenix ChickensAbout Phoenix Chickens

Phoenixes are a show bird more than anything; they are extremely poor egg layers and their body structure doesn't make them very good fryers. Phoenix Chickens are best known for their tail, which can grow to almost absurd proportions. They have an average-sized single comb and medium length wattle, both a light red color. Their colorings can various wildly from silver to black to gold to red to brown. Their legs and beak are typically a light gray color.  

Phoenixes do well in confinement, which is good because they'll need lots of codling due to their tail feathers. Their attitudes range from shy and calm to aggressive and in-your-face. Generally though they aren't very friendly and don't like to be pestered.    

In order to keep their tail feathers clean and undamaged, Phoenixes require a high amount of maintenance. They need their bedding and coops to be clean and dry and their perches for roosting to be high up off the ground so that their tail feathers aren't just resting in the dirt. Furthermore, their tails can freeze in the winter months, so they need warm coops to manage the shift in temperature.
