    Phoenix is one of the many European chickens that evolved from selective breeding of the Japanese breed chicken Onagador with other breeds of chicken by
    the first president of the National German Poultry Association, Mr. Hugo du Roi. In the year 1974, the Phoenix breed was accepted into the American Poultry Association's Standard of Perfection. There are three recognized colors in this particular breed which are Silver, Golden and Black-Breasted Red.

    The Phoenix chicken has long tail which mostly reaches two to three feet which will molt every other year. Phoenix chickens have pheasant-like appearance, with a white earlobes, and a single comb with a slate colored legs.

    For the rooster, its tails is carried horizontally and slightly higher than hens. Phoenuix hens are quite poor layers, producing one small to medium size eggs per week. Because of their active nature with superb fighting skills, as well as to accomade the length of their tails, a large coop is highly recommended for keeping Phoenixes contained.

    "overall a good guy"
    Pros - a good looking cock
    Cons - kind of an asshole sometimes
    This chicken is a joy to breed! Every hen dreams of the day they get a phoenix cock to impregnate them. The chicks are cute and yellow.

    "A great bird to own on every level"
    Pros - Sweet Natured, Sociable with all other chicken, beautiful feathering and colors
    Cons - Extra care for tail feathers, large coop
    I love my Rooster and bought him as a pet who ended up winning some show awards. He is very sweet, tame and just a joy to own. I don\'t feel like the larger cage or extra care for his tail is really that much of a turn off compared to the pro\'s this breed gives. Owning a phoenix is like owning a piece of walking history/art!
