Japanese Long-Tailed Fowl: by Dr. Joseph Batty (Author)

This book presents a history and description of Japanese long-tailed fowl, which tails grow up to 30 feet long. It also examines the ways for achieving the appropriate results in tail size. Breeds such as the Yokahamas, Phoenix, Silver Duckwing, the Onagadori and more are covered in this book.

The long-tailed fowl is so named because its tail continues to grow to great lengths, thus making the species and associated breeds quite unique. The tail of fine species may reach up to 30 feet. In Britain and North America there are the Yokohamas and Phoenix, which originated from the same source as the Japanese Long-tailed Fowl. This book examines the history of these unique breeds and examines the ways for achieving the appropriate results in tail size. A "must" for anyone interested in poultry, especially the unusual and rare breeds.
