    Some sort of Oriental Gamefowl. Either an Asil or a cross of sorts.

    Depends where you are and if you can prove his worth and what for.

    Oriental Gamefowl can go for a good price to fighting homes if they fight well and if it is legal in your country. Or, they can go for good price if they're proven purebred and of good type in the US. Or, they can go for cheap because there's no proof of purebred or the local buyers don't know what an Oriental Gamecock really is.

    All depends. [​IMG] I think he's gorgeous and would take him, but, I'm a big fan of Games. Especially the Oriental types. ( Asils, Shamos, Malays, Thais, Malgache, Ga Don, etc )
