This is my gorgeous 20-week-old Japanese bantam, Sushi. I know her legs are too long, and I don't plan to either breed or show her. Once she's a little bigger, she'll go out to live with my D'Uccles and D'Anvers. Her father was a blue frizzle Japanese and her mother was a BBR Japanese. I know the guy who bred her and saw both of the parents. She's a character and a half, but her feathers are...weird. They're fluffy, soft, and kind of raggedy-looking, and only a few of them are stiff like the ones on my Belgian girls and boy. Are all Japanese bantam's feathers like this? Or is it because her dad is a frizzle? And what the heck do you call this color pattern? It's got buff and grey and blue in it, with pretty blue ears. The divot in her beak is from my lowest-ranking D'Anvers girl, who eats doves for breakfast and mistook Sushi for a dove last week when we went out to hang laundry. And no, I would NEVER let her watch Jeopardy with me, so that is not a blanket and sofa!
