Special mounted Phoenix rooster on black console
Stuffed Phoenix rooster. This rooster has the beautiful and extremely long cover and tail feathers. The Phoenix grouse is a breed of chicken that originated in Japan and Germany, and as a purely ornamental breed is counted among the long-tailed grouse breeds. There is also a bantam variety. Around 1878, long-tailed fowl were imported from Japan to Germany, which were crossed with English fighting hens and other breeds to enable them to adapt to the European climate. The name was taken from the phoenix usually depicted with a long tail in Oriental art. In continental Europe the breed is recognized separately, in Great Britain, on the other hand, due to its great resemblance to the Yokohama hen, it is considered a variant of this single comb breed.
