    I want to order a few Yokohamas from Ideal and Cackle this year, but I have a few questions. Are Yokohamas aggressive? I've had Phoenix-- are they similar personality wise? Are they more cannibalistic than other breeds? Are the roosters mean/fighters (with other roosters- I keep a mixed flock that includes several roosters in one pen sometimes)? Are they cold weather hardy? Are they friendly? Do they tolerate confinement and docile breeds? If you've had a Yokohama please comment! Thanks!

    I ordered some yokohamas from ideal this year. I read the males should have good dispositions. Very beautiful. Mine are going to be in with my other birds... as my malays, will not. My chicks are due to be shipped next week.

    Good luck.

    The males are no different than any other male. They are not cold hardy as a rule, the hens are horrible egg layers, But they are a great breed for exhibition.
