    Quote:Sleepy can you educate me on this breed a tad? are these shown-raised for certain reasons other than beauty--are they rare? Ive never seen them before and from your auction ( please excuse the joking on it-but it does bring it up on the threads alot more) photos they are so huge and thinnish do they fatten up?

    The Shamo is a naked heel game bird from Japan.

    The breed was originally brought into Japan from Thailand in the seventeenth century - the name referring to Siam, the old name for Thailand. In Japan it was developed into a distinctive fighting bird of courage and ferocity.
    Its posture is very upright, with prominent shoulders, powerful bone structure, muscular build and sparse hard feather, which all together make it an impressive and striking bird.

    theres three types of Shamo: Ko shamo the smallest, Chu Shamo medium, O-Shamo being the biggest
