gamefowl

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Are there any gamefowl, oriental or not, that can be freeranged in a flock. Roosters and hens. Without fighting constantly or to the death? I really like the asil, shamo, thai type chickens(the stance, body build and personality)but I don't think they do good in this kind of situation. Any that might do well? Other than the cubalaya and kraienkoppe. Thanks for your answers.

Someone died so you wouldn't have to, have you said thank you?

Will modern cocks fight to the death? And are they really fragile? that's what I've read.

If they are true game fowl there can be only one. They will fight and kill till there is only one or possible none. I raised them for thirty some years and I found people that enjoyed them so put them on country walks. A cock and a few hens. That way more could be free ranged.

it is just another farm of neighbor that will let you keep a few at their place. We referred to them as "walks".  I used to raise a couple hundred stags and cocks a year and had plenty of people that would let me drop them off and then pick them up in the fall. There were a lot healthier than the ones raised in pens or on tie cords.
