    On second thought, looks kind of like a Jungle Fowl cock...

    Wasson, cheap wise you might be able to check Craigslist and your state's market bulletins. But, given some may be cheap- who knows what quality they will be. Some people online sell them mostly on gamefowl websites, you can check the "Show us your games!" thread here on BYC and ask around as some here have them.

    Oleandor farm or Johnnie Jumper's farm along with Rockytop Gamefarm (You can find them through Google) for their Kelso. But price wise, I'm not sure how much they will be- all three are known for having great Kelso though.

    I've always been interested in the Old English type game cocks but never saw any info as to their disposition and protecting a regular flock of layers. I wouldn't have any interest in fighting them, I just admire the game cocks.

      Modern Game Cocks are my favorite. They are very pretty, with tight feathering and long legs. I don't have any but i would like some.
