The Japanese bantam or Chabo is an ornamental bantam breed of chicken originating in Japan over 300 years ago. It is a true bantam breed, meaning that there are no large fowl counterparts. It has a large upright tail that often reaches over the bird's head. This little gem lays lots of tinted / cream colour eggs. They have a large comb and red face.
Because of a genetic characteristic in Japanese bantams there is no such thing as a pure short legged Japanese. You may experience some chicks with medium to long legs.
