Yokohama - Red Saddled

Yokohama - Red Saddled chickens available from Murton Farm, Forfar

The Yokohama is a graceful bird. The males, in particular, with their flowing saddle and tail feathers are particularly striking. In their native Japan, the males' tail feathers can grow to over six metres (20 feet) but in the west, the tails are unlikely to grow to such lengths because the environmental conditions are different.

Eggs: Tinted or White.
