Breed Details:
The American Game's comb can be found as pea and single comb with combinations of each. They are also some of the hardiest birds that you will ever come across and in my opinion, by far the most beautiful. They are known most for being excellent flyers, very good foragers, and you can'’t beat them for broodiness. All of these traits make them an excellent choice for free ranging, until the stags come of age, then they will need to be separated, as they will fight to the death defending their territory. This is something that is part of their nature, being a game breed”, and there is nothing you can do to them that will change this unless you start mixing non-game breeds into them, and even then it doesn't mean you will not still have this issue to deal with. This is why you see many people keep mature cocks on tethers attached to barrels, as it is a great way to keep them separated, and at the same time, allow them to move around enough to keep them happy and healthy. It is also common practice to dub cocks tight to the head, and remove the ear lobes and wattles as well. This practice was originally done for fighting purposes, but now it is done for purely aesthetic reasons. Hens lay a medium sized white or cream colored egg. And lay mid-Spring to late Summer, but some will continue until early Fall. As a rule, Games are normally easily handled birds, and are a joy to own. I highly recommend at least a pair of these birds in every yard. -Written by CUDA, and DTchickens.
