Historical evidence suggests that the Japanese Bantam originated in Vietnam, not Japan, however this breed is very common in the gardens of Japan’s upper class for the last few hundred years. They are also popular in Malaysia and parts of Indonesia. They have very short legs, a very large comb and a large upright tail. Japanese Bantams are also good foragers, and will feed themselves if they have a large enough area to do so. They are a friendly breed which allow themselves to be petted and held, and are therefore easy to tame.
Highly varied from black, black- red mottled, white to grey.
