[FONT=georgia,palatino]The Yokohama is a breed of chicken that originated in Germany in the 19th century. It was developed from the Japanese long-tailed breed called the Onagadori, and these ancestors of today's Yokohama were imported from Yokohama, Japan. In appearance, it most closely resembles the Phoenix breed.
The Yokohama is primarily ornamental. It lays cream or tinted eggs, on an average of one egg a week, and doesn't get very big, only four to five pounds. The most distinguished feature of this fowl is its elegant long tail. It comes both in the bantam and standard sizes. It has yellow skin, and can have either a walnut or a pea comb.
My rooster is a blue red cockerel and she is a white pullet. He unfortunately got a late start with his tail but it is growing in nicely now.[/FONT]
