    What breed is my gamefowl

    Even though there is yellow legged hatch, most come green legged. Look up grey gamefowl, your hen has some grey blood in her to come the color she is. Probably a grey crossed on hatch maybe, unless you did the breeding or the original breeder kept track of what her parents are, no one will ever...

    We were going to use some malay in our orloff breeding program, had a great pair, but they just never produced for us. Was sad too were great birds. Orloffs were cool as well.

    The line throws henny cocks. The hennys are a blend of black henny and another black family.

    He is from a henny line cross, crossed to Jumper kelso then bred back to the henny side. "Pure" is always a funny catch word when you talk of American Gamefowl. I would say yes, he is a pure American Gamefowl :)

    Depends on the line, they are mostly the big shamo type birds though. There are smaller, asil type lines from brazil too. The most common is the bigger ones it seems.

    Hatcheries are in the business of selling chicks, and quantity is $$$$. Most oriental breeds are poor layers compared to the production type chickens that are out there. So for more bang for their buck, many hatcheries that offer the breeds that tend to lay less have been known to cross...

    Just be careful when using things like dog and cat food, some brands have salt content that can damage your birds internals. A great supplement is if you have a local farmers market that you can get the over-ripened fruits and veggies from. They will usually let you haul the stuff off for free...

    To stop bleeding after being dubbed I've heard to use flour, or corn starch, or a feather (what my grandfather used), and now coffee grounds among tons of other suggested things. What I found works the best is to get the bird out of your hands and back on a roost/in a cage, etc., as fast as you...
