What is the difference between the O shamo and Malay? I've looked at both of them online and they both look VERY similar... Thanks in advance

Shamo are pea combed, taller, more upright, thinner, longer tails.
Malay are cushion combed, a bit more solid/muscular, and have shorter, sometimes higher tails.
Shamo are from Japan , Malay from Asia / India. Good Shamo are still game, while few if any Malay are anymore. More later.

Shamo wings are more prominent at the shoulder and the tips will be held lower than in a Malay. Malays should lay a darker egg than a Shamo. Malay are in bad shape overall as a breed and have some inherent problems. Shamo tend to more/quite hardy. In the USA our standard has the Malay smaller then the Shamo, although weights of both vary quite a bit. They are quite district breeds when you learn to recognize "type" first. A Malay when seen in profile should present 3 curves, head, body, tail, all angled down.

Yes, Ko shamo are BRED in Europe, sure. However, they are originally from JAPAN.  They were created in Japan. I have Ko Shamo, does that mean they are from PA? 

 

If you really don't know what you are talking about, please kindly just refrain from typing.
