    Extremely hard to find... there's an article here that tells more about them. The only person I know on here who might know where any can be located would be ChinaChicks1

    More information about the おひき here... http://www.longtail-fowl.com/

    They
    are pretty difficult to find in North America and require special care.  

    If you are interested in a similar breed that is easier to find, try the Phoenix. They are a little taller, but still have the dragging tail and wing angle of the おひき. Phoenix are a little feisty and flighty by nature unless you REALLY take the time to get them used to you and to being handled.
