ARKANSAS HOMESTEAD FAMILY FARMS: Straight-Run Chicks $50 each; Sexed & Feathered Cockerel Chicks $65 & $75 for feathered pullet chicks.

Ko Shamo is a hard-feathered Japanese breed that is considered a true bantam, meaning there is no large form of this breed. The head and neck of Ko Shamo chickens are typically large, as are their legs. They are small game fowl averaging 1.5 lbs, that were created in Japan to enable indoor keeping of game fowl.

These are small personable little bantams that were bred in Japan as "apartment" or "house" chickens. They have very short rounded wings and as such cannot fly any distance like regular bantams. They can jump up to higher perches but cannot fly across the room. They are Japan's 'therapy chicken". These tiny Ko Shamo's weigh up to 1.5-2 pounds for roosters, are cute, funny and a charm to have on the family homestead, as well as in our home.
