ABOUT THE SHAMOS BREED & ORGINS: The Shamo is a hardy Oriental Breed of chicken, Shamos are a hard featherd breed of chicken from Japan, which was originated in Thailand. The name "Shamo" was a corruption of "Siam" during the early Edo period but has been selectively bred for several hundred years. Shamos are tall, with a rather upright stance; they have the typical Oriental 'bird of prey" expression, with heavy brow ridges and short, sturdy beak. Eyes are usually pearl, the comb is pea, wattles are small or non-existent, and the feathering is exceedingly short and hard, to the extent that the breastbone is left bare. Shamo are broad shouldered and heavily boned. Tails are small, and generally follow the line of the back sloping downward to the ground Colors in the American standard include Black, Black Breasted Red (Wheaten), and Dark, and colors in the Japanese standard include Akasasa (red-hackled), Kisasa (yellow-hackled), Shojo (brown), Goishi (mottled), Abura (dark red-hackled), Hakushoku (white), Asagi (blue), and Kokushoku (black). KEEPING/ KEEPING SHAMO SHAMO: When keeping Shamo is that they should mature slowly. A bird of either sex is not adult until about two years old. Roosters of ten months will look a very different from a bird after another year. No feeding high protein diets to chicks! No Turkey or Gamebird Starter ! Simple chick starter will do. To much protein can cause an OVER WEIGHT BIRDS. SHAMO AS MOTHERS : Shamos are generally easy to handle and pleasant tempered, as well as being outstanding broodies & mothers & are very protective of their chicks. They will protect their chicks from almost anything. Shamo Hens go broody very easily, So eggs have to be collected daily unless you want chicks running everywhere. I am am getting great hatches & fertility, from my shamo bantams. SHIPPING & EGGS : With Shipping eggs, There are never any guarentees, Please know the risk of shipping hatching eggs. The shipping process is or can be a rough one, eggs are somtimes rough handled by the PO, & are always x-rayed often to leading to some loss in fertility but not always. So for these reasons there are never any guaretees with shipped eggs. My shipping experiences have always been positive with both shipping & recieving hatching eggs. We use tons of shreaded paper, & bubble wrap, & include as many extras as possible when available. So you have better chances of hatching more chicks.
