This rooster is one of the rarest chicken breeds on earth! Hatched in April 2020, the Japanese Onagadori, prized for the rooster’s amazing tail lengths, is the only chicken breed on the planet that can exhibit non-molting tail and saddle feathers. Onagadori chickens are not long tailed Phoenix chickens. Phoenix chickens can only grow only up to a 3-4 ft tail and usually molt their feathers every year.
