Y and Z

Here we are, at the end of the alphabet.

Y is for Yokohama, perhaps the most unusual of the breeds in this series.

With a tail like that, it’s not a low-maintenance chicken! Obviously, this is an ornamental animal. You’ll need high roosts, dry bedding and a covered pen if you’re going to keep these birds. I have no first-hand experience with Yokohamas. Do you?



Z is for zest is for eggs in the nest. That I have experience with!



New to this alphabet series? It’s starts with A here.


  1. Z is for Zealous
    for hens of all kinds
    Even roosters are delightful
    especially mine!

    Thanks for this fun series, Terry…As you might have guessed it was right up my alley. :)

  2. I agree – it was an entertaining series. Thanks for sharing, Terry.
    (p.s. Cute poem , Lesley!)
