Pros: not aggressive, beautiful
Cons: a bit flighty
I got my first Yokos just a few weeks ago. It was a dream come true for me. I've been getting to know them while they're in the quarantine pen, and so far, I'm in love. Not only are they gorgeous, my roo is such a gentleman. He selects the best morsels of the greens that I pick for them and offers them to his hen from his beak. If he drops the greens on the floor, she takes care to only eat those bits. Maki (my roo) is very vocal. His crow sounds like a kazoo stuck in a trumpet. Still, he's the only one of my 4 roos that actually say "cock-a-doodle-do!" They can be a little flighty if you move too fast, but if you go slow and talk quietly, they seem to warm up a little bit. These are amazingly beautiful chickens! (I know it looks like he has a "squirrel tail" here but when he relaxes, his tail goes down.
