|As of April these will be the only gamefowl I breed in number, this family was passed on to me in the 80's and have been shown and proven that I know of since the 20's. I keep them in good health, feed them good and breed for quality, they started as a breed of mixed games by a big time cocker in the 20's who raised his birds on my grandfathers farm, in the 80's Spanish, Asil and China was added to them, the Spanish to increase show quality, the Asil to make stronger bones and the China because the Spanish left them with a stumpy looking tail. These birds are shown here in KY for over 90 years and have been proven beyond any doubt, they can come in weight ranges from 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 for South American Class Poultry show (pluck good and easy), nice head hunting blood lines, also from 4 to 6 lb for the Standered weight class of American and Philliopino type show, there station and plumage along with head hunting style of breed makes them great for these standereds, and can get some shake weight for Mexico, but not alot of heavy birds out of them. They show well, are mostly calm, but sometimes a mean one will come. Color may vary drastically, these show good pure or make good crosses, THEY ARE SOLD FOR BREEDING ONLY!!! NONE SOLD IN KY!!!|
These fowl are breed originally for the quality of true blooded gamefowl. Historically they were fought in the 1.25 gaff and traditionally in postisa and graded for knife. With the end of cockfighting in America they are now more ornamental then commercial. Still they are breed as much toward there original game qualities as possible. They use to show and when cut down would be test on 1, 2 and 3 day to test for gameness. The more this kinda bird was injured the harder he would fight. In the early days of America this kinda bird was worth more then gold. They are now breed for true game quality and showing capabilities. Are nice for free rangers, cornish or your local poultry shows.
