Javas

One of our older breeds, the original stock came to the US from the far east, although today's birds are quite modified from that early stock in all but name. Javas were admitted to the APA's Standard in 1883. Black and Mottled Javas are recognized, although in 1885 White Javas were shown in Chicago.

This is a dual purpose fowl with yellow skin and brown eggs.

Here is an article on the status of the Java.
