Mr. Pher Nunag and his chabo chicken breed
During the first day of competition held yesterday , I met Mr. Pher Nunag from Kabalen Bantam Society from San Fernando City , Pampanga. He entered a couple of Japanese bantam chicken or Chabo in the competition.
chabo chicken walking
He started taking care of bantam chicken breed in 2014, when he was attracted to some small breeds of chicken . Unlike the larger counterparts ,bantam chicken and chabo requires smaller space and less food. They are also adorable and cuddly . The chabo breed has a large upright tail that often reaches over the bird’s head. The wings angle down, and to the back, along the sides.
I also met the association president Mr. Vilmo Silviderio and he is quite happy with the attendance and number of entries had increase several times.
small chicken breed
The Japanese bantam and similar breed are enjoying an increasing popularity mainly because it is an ideal bird for people who are fond of their lawns and gardens because they are not good diggers as their short legs stop them from damaging the ground.
I saw a small chicken breed that was part of the exhibit , i do not know if the small breed was entered in the competition or it was just intended for exhibition purposes.
