About Yokohama Chickens
Yokohama chickens are show birds with an ornate appearance
with a long, flowing tail. Their combs are fairly small, almost walnut-shaped,
and are set forward on the head. Their wattles are small as well, as are their
dewlops and they have a red coloration on their shoulders.
Yokohamas tend to be very aggressive toward humans and other
long tail feathers can very easily become dirty or broken, so it's important
that you have perches placed fairly high up to avoid feathers laying in the
dirt for too long. This also means they function best with clean, dry litter
covering under their perches. If you intend to raise a show rooster, keep him
separate from other Yokohama to avoid damaged or broken feathers.
