The team at Cackle Hatchery® is proud to introduce the Red Shoulder Yokohoma. If you aren’t familiar with this rare breed chicken, it was originally developed in Japan and we have been the main breeder in the USA since 1977. As the name implies, this specific variety is notable for the red feathering in the shoulder area, mixed in with the traditional white feathers. The birds have an upright carriage and pheasant-like body and the roosters are noted for their extremely long saddle feathers and tail feathers which is the primary emphasis for exhibitors of this chicken breed. Under the right conditions the tail can grow up to 2-3 feet every year. The Red Shouldered Yokohama was admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1981 and this variety will also compete very well at any poultry show.
