Cubalayas are a gorgeous breed with long, lustrous tail feathers kept mainly in Cuba but originating in the East (probably the Phillipines). In North America, Cubalayas are rare and enjoyed only as an ornamental breed. The hens that can lay fairly well, though. The roosters, on the other hand, can be aggressive and can also have multiple spurs.
