Chicken is a small and charming, ideal as a pet for children. Due to the specific morphology of the legs and trunk, the breed is not suitable to live in classic chicken coops, but it needs special care. They can not be exposed to the weather and the house must be cleaned constantly, because the belly and wings graze the ground. Everything has to be within their reach, since they are very low, from perches to feeding, exit to the outside. They are perfect to breed birds in the garden, because in addition to their decorativeness are not capable of damaging plants and flower beds. They have a very sweet and trusting, and between them are very tolerant: not only is it possible to breed roosters together, but also to combine a hen with children with other chickens; in this case the rooster would take care of the chicks with their mother.
The genetic factor that determines the strength of the legs means that not all the eggs do chicks born with this characteristic: 100 fertilized eggs, 50 will give birth to chicks with short legs, 25 with normal legs, and the remaining 25 chicks that die prematurely . To prevent this, breeders mate subjects with long legs with those with short legs. In this case, 50 of 100 will have short legs, and 50 legs normal, with no deaths in the egg. The eggs are small and white. The Chabo is one of the breeds bred dwarf most sporting purposes (for exposure).
