    I am a small breeder, I only have a few (like 25) so you can give them the best attention and care they require. Only 2 males are aggressive others are very docile and friendly. Females do not have spurs, some phoenix have.

    I just bought a yokohama/Sumata rooster that looks just like your third picture. I'll have to get pictures of him. He is free ranging with white pheonix hens, a silver pheonix hen, and a spangled game hen. can't wait for babys

    Hi; everyone

    Gallo, the cockerel looks great, I really like it. As in February I'll put some pictures of other color crossings cuckoo and Crele in which I've been working. I'm waiting to have his tail a little longer.

    This is a standard Silver Phoenix / Standard Black Sumatra Cross.
    He has multiple spurs from the Sumatra and his tail drags the ground like the Phoenix.
    He is 11 months old in these photos.
    I had 3 White Orpington hens that got loose in the pasture and he has claimed them as his harem.
    With him, they range the full 20 acre pasture. Before he claimed them, they stayed within 50 feet of the barn.
    The rest of the chickens stay close to the barn on the south side, this guy and his harem stay in the horse pasture on the north side.
    When I go walk the fence line, he and his white harem follow along to see what I am doing.
    The Orp hens were given to me and he was a very pretty accident. So I just let them free range in the pasture.
    I have Black, Blue and Splash French Marans; Black, Blue and Splash Ameraucanas; All colors Silkie; Blue Laced Red Wyandotte; Buff, Gold, Silver Polish; and other assorted breeds, Black, Blue and Splash Sumatra chicks on the way. Blue Ameraucana eggs in the incubator.
    About 150 total now.
