Phoenix (chicken)


Phoenix (chicken)

The Phoenix is a breed of chicken originating in Japan. Its colour is an unusual combination of silver and black. Cocks have long tail feathers, reaching 5 feet on average. Historically, the tail could reach 15–20 feet; the only breed of chicken that can grow such a tail today is the Onagadori.

There has been confusion as to the proper name for this breed. Most generally accept the single comb birds as the Phoenix.
