The Java, a premiere homesteading fowl, is considered the second oldest breed of chicken developed in America. Its ancestors were reputed to have come from the Far East, possibly from the isle of Java. Javas come in three varieties: Black, Mottled and White, though all Javas have yellow skin and lay brown eggs. The Java has a rectangular shape, much like the Rhode Island Red, but with a long, sloping back line. They have a full, well-rounded breast. The Plymouth Rock and Jersey Giant breeds owe much to the Java, as the Java was used in the creation of both of these breeds, which later replaced it.
