Ohiki

One of the Japanese longtailed breeds. It is a single combed bird with a white earlobe and red-brown eyes. Legs should be olive or willow green. The tail should drag behind at an angle of 30 degrees. It is a true bantam that was developed from the Onagadori and Chabo and is a very popular breed today in Japan. Males should weigh around 940 grams and females 750 gm. Tails can range from 60-150 cm (22- 55 inches) in length.

Long feather growth may be associated with genes for extra feathering, so that some breeds, including the Ohiki, may have very full tails due to the presence of extra sickles and coverts.
