Valley Hatchery proudly offers the Black Japanese Bantam Chicks, a breed that embodies the elegance and mystique of the ornamental poultry world. These striking birds are adorned with a rich, velvety black plumage that captures the eye, making them a standout choice for exhibitions and backyard poultry enthusiasts alike.
Renowned for their dynamic personalities and miniature stature, the Black Japanese Bantams are an ideal choice for various settings, from spacious farms to more compact urban gardens. Their most notable feature, apart from their stunning black feathers, is their distinctive short legs, a result of the ‘creeper’ gene. This unique genetic trait, while contributing to their charming appearance, also influences their breeding, as it can lead to reduced hatch rates and varying leg lengths among the hatchlings.
Despite their petite frame, with roosters weighing around 26oz and hens slightly less at 22oz, these bantams are known for their spirited presence. In terms of egg-laying, they produce a modest number of small, tinted eggs, and exhibit occasional broodiness, which can be a delightful opportunity for those interested in hatching and raising chicks.
Valley Hatchery is thrilled to bring you these magnificent Black Japanese Bantam Chicks. Not only do they offer an aesthetic appeal with their deep black feathers, but they also bring joy and liveliness to your flock. Whether you’re a seasoned poultry keeper or just starting out, these birds are sure to enchant and captivate with their beauty and charm.
