    The story that I heard, about how the Blue Face Hatch (American Game) got their name, was that the original cock bird would turn blue in the face when he exerted energy.

    I wanted to know if this is true and if so, do true Blue Face Hatch do the same thing as well today?

    This was just a curiosity of mine so I thought I would try to find out. Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    That is the story I herd about them.. If you get a good blue face Hatch today they should do the same thing.. More or less like a turkey..
