Chinese Owls have the most outstanding jabot, the cascading feathers down the front of the breast. These feathers hide the neck and most of the head to make them look like a ball of feathers. The rest of the feathers on the body are smooth and normal looking. There are several colors and color patterns that they come in. They have a short beak.
