The Chabo or Japanese Bantam is a pure breed of bantams that, as the name indicates already, has been created in Japan. Specifically in Japan, developing miniature forms is a common specialisation. You might think, for example, of the little Bonsai trees. 

The story is that somewhere in the past a poultry breed has been imported in Japan from Indo-China, better known now as the countries Thailand, Burma, Vietnam en Malaysia. The Japanese have developed from that breed the Chabo. A small, graceful bantam variety that with its short legs, large crest and impressive tail is nevertheless a striking appearance. And, if you also know that this breed appears in many colours and varieties you will immediately understand that the Chabo attracts the true lovers of bantams.
