Black Breasted Red Shamo-  We have maintained this breed since 1992. While our strain is not nearly as tall as some seen today they do have an upright stance and are a very firm fleshed  husky bird. The males will fight with one another if a strange one is introduced but they are very loyal to their owner and I have never been attacked by one.  Their legs are massive and thick . Egg supply is always sporadic and you must be patient and wait for them.  Chicks $6.00 each   (5)
