They are what many consider just an asian game with a different name, like shamo,asil,brazil,thailand. I found them to be more on the gentile birds, said to be the biggest of most chicken breeds,  my old saipans didn't grow much. They were also very genetically weak.

There is not a whole lot of information about them out there. From what I understand pure Saipans are nearly non existent and most are crossed with Shamos, Asils, Malays ect....This is pretty interesting if you have not already seen this
