Java Bantam

Java Bantam are one of the oldest and most popular bantam breeds in showing, and  an ornamental chicken, they are subsequently poor egg layers, and not suited for meat production. The breed is one of a group of “true bantams,” which means there is not a large version of the same chicken. Because Java are raise primarily for exhibition,  They're not particularly hardy or easy to raise and are kept mainly for exhibition. They males have long sickle tail feathers and large, round, white earlobes, legs are slate blue, long and graceful. The chicks are often in need of special care as they are slow to mature and need to be kept warm and dry and receive good feed to help them grow. They are pretty hardy in both heat and cold and the cocks can be rather aggressive. They are good fliers . They tend to be very friendly birds and make good pets. Special care needs to be taken in cold weather.
