Description [edit]

The O Shamo breed of chickens, or Shamo, is commonly found in Japan. The breed originally developed in Thailand, and today is bred for its aesthetic beauty and show quality. %%AFC-ADVERT%%

In Japanese, 'Shamo', translates as 'fighter' and these birds have been controversially used in cock-fighting for centuries in Japan, where the sport is legal.

There are many different subspecies of the O Shamo chicken, but they can commonly be distinguished by their upright body posture, strong plumage and jutted shoulders.

Temperament of the O Shamo Chicken Breed

As mentioned above, these birds have been used for fighting for centuries, so they can be extremely aggressive if provoked. Generally, however, they will be well-mannered and tame if they are treated with the appropriate care.

Diet of the O Shamo Chicken

O Shamo chickens will generally be more than happy with general chicken feed. Despite their exotic origins, these birds have a similar appetite to other chickens.

Housing O Shamo Chickens

As with the majority of chicken breeds, provided you offer a spacious coop, adequate shelter, a decent food and water supply and a secure environment, O Shamo chickens are fairly self-sufficient and require little maintenance.
