Description

A perfect option for an ornamental chicken, the Silver Duckwing Yokohoma is a rare Japanese show bird. They have an upright carriage and pheasant-like body. This specific variety features silver and black feathers, as well as the traditional plumage found among all types of Yokohoma. Their tails can grow up to 2-3 feet every year with proper care. Unlike their Red Shouldered and White Yokohama variations, the Silver Duckwing Yokohama variation has yet to be admitted into the American Standard of Perfection. They aren’t really known for their laying capabilities since they’ll go broody after laying only their first dozen eggs. This rare breed chicken was originally developed in Japan and Cackle Hatchery has been the main breeder in the USA since 1977. Their unique feathers and striking presence makes them perfect for show competition.
