    Yes they are the same I think the term Indian Game is used more in the UK and Dark Cornish in the States.

    No, they're two different breeds that are very similar. Indian Games are more popular in the UK, Cornish are more popular in America. They descended from the same birds, but they have slightly different types.

    Cornish are more cobby and they're not very smart.

    Indian Games still retain some of the gamey traits, they have longer legs, thinner bodies, and are "wild savvy."
