Kawamata shamo

Shamo were one type of chicken bred for eating, but with a fiery temperament and chivalrous bearing, they were bred to be suited for cockfighting and as ornamental birds. In Kawamata, these shamo were improved so that they would make good eating, giving rise to the "Kawamata shamo". Their meat has a pleasing texture and a rich flavor, and the simple taste is that of chicken in times past. The meat is not as fatty as that of other chickens, and with low calories and high protein, is a very healthy meat. You can eat this alongside meat from regular chickens to compare. .
