The Black Breasted Red Phoenix Standard size chicken was developed from the Onagadori Japanese breed. The Phoenix was developed in post World War II Germany. This chicken has long tails, a red saddle, and a beautiful black breast. The Phoenix was bred to have exceptionally long tails, but not to the extravagant length of the Onagadori. Their tail feathers stay blood filled which will cause them to continue to grow. The male Phoenix, depending on bloodline, can have tails that reach 4-5 feet. The hens are very broody and lay small tinted eggs. These Chickens are great for Exhibition or Fair.
