The Mottled Japanese Bantam is a high-quality chicken that has black and white feathers, a large comb, and wings that touch the ground. These bantams carry their tails upward and higher than the head. The wings angle down and back along the sides. Good layers, nice for show, and very popular. 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. This breed has a long history in Japan, and the American Poultry Standard of Perfection recognized this specific variety in 1947. Whether you are looking for a new pet or a show chicken, the Mottled Japanese Bantam is a great choice. Place your order for baby chicks today.
