Gallus gallus domesticus

Family: Rallidae

Origin: Japan

Lifespan: 10 to 12 years

Reproduction: The female (hen) lays around 10 eggs and incubates for 21 days; the small ones are called chicks.

Nutrition diet: Granivorous (seeds, plants, insects, slugs…)

Description: It is also called red saddled Yokohama, but there is also a variety of white coloured chickens. Its tail can reach 1.50 metres. The Yokohama hen is quite rare in France because it is not a very good laying hen and it’s not used for its meat either.
