Show Off Your Games!

The game breeds represent intelligence, athletic ability and beauty.  This thread is designed for people who appreciate the character and look of game breeds.  We all know there are quite a few misconceptions about the game temperment and I would like a thread where we counter those misconceptions with pictures and stories of how these fowl have touched your life.  Please avoid any and all references to illegal activities and illegal uses of these fowl.

I agree, here is a couple of examples of how my games are some of the calmest, most trustworthy birds on my yard.

My Key West chickens are a game mix. Way smaller than a standard game. My roo Smokey is the best, very docile towards people, but protects his woman with his life. My chickens are extremely smart, make great parents and are beautiful.

Mother of 5 Nigerian dwarf goats, 2 dogs, 7 chickens from Key West, 1 mottled Aracuana, a lavender Araucana, pair of lavender Ameraucanas,  4 seramas, 1 frizzled naked neck bantam, a BC Marans, a couple of olive egger's, a buff orp mix, 2 silkies, several random mixes,16 year old son, 21 year old daughter and 47 year old DH.

I know some people will say they don't count because they don't have the same game temperment as say the American Games but I say lets appreciate all the game breeds even the bantams smile  they all have special characters

Here's my son holding HIS Thailand Gamefowl, the rooster follows him around like a dog and lets him pick him up and carry him around the yard smile

Gaidin is a Reserve Champion show bird, judged by American Gamefowl Standards... Hopefully CUDA will post his Grand Champion Kelso too

Gaidin is very sweet.  He makes sure all his girls are well fed and that they share.  He sits on chicks on cold nights along with his hen Ninja who hatches 3 broods a year starting in late February early March.  The chicks can stay in the pen with mom and dad until the stags get close to crowing age with no problems.

Fruitloop was a Toppy hen, notice the mohawk woot.  She gave her life attacking a coyote so that her 9 chicks would have time to run to safety, RIP.
