    Ok very short question
    Do yokohama come in black color?
    A breeder has called to tell me he has chicks to sell. I cant find any info about black yokohamas. Please suggest should i buy those or its a scam?

    Probably a scam. I believ yokohomas come in only white and rred saddled. It could be black phoenixes as they are very similair.

    Well, there were crosses made with Sumatras. It may be where blacks came from, if they are around.

    I know that there are references to Blue Yokohamas.

    There is a lot of interesting information here.

    http://www.longtail-fowl.com/yoko.html

    It also discusses some of the long-tailed strains of Sumatras that are out there.

    i am going over there to look for my self. chicks are about week old, would be hard to identify them at that age, but hopefully take some snaps and will post them here for evaluation.

    What do you think about these. Looks quite like Sumatra.

    The rooster on the roost is multiple spurred, which sumatras are. I don't think yokos are but I don't know for sure.
