DUBBING OLD ENGLISH GAME AND MODERN GAME BANTAMS Glenda Heywood After living in South Carolina for over 18 yrs I learned a lot about dubbing Old English Games. To be able to show Old English and Modern Games. Thy must be Dubbed. ... MODERN GAMES ARE DIFFERENT. We raised many Modern Game Bantams When dubbing Modern Games one dubbs all the area under the chin off, which means all loose skin. not leaving any skin left just has to heal tight and snake headed. go on line to bing and se lots of pictures. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=h55bgNUw&id=5341605A2C7B079D4B218F3554BEC465F8E4E4B0&q=photos+of+dubbing+modern+game+bantams&simid=608037499271774254&selectedIndex=4&ajaxhist=0 So that the skin has to grow back tight and make the Modern Game snake headed. the healing pulls the beak skin tight. MY BEST ADVISE IS WHAT MY HUSAND DID: MODERN GAME COCKEREL He would take cockerels that were not the best. and dub them first, to get the idea in his head: and then dub the ones he was to show. It is simple: THE COMB IS DUBBED FLAT TO THE HEAD start at back and dub to front of comb. Then dub by cutting all the loose skin, wattles etc off under the head on the neck. OLD ENGLISH GAME DUBBING NOW important: FOR OLD ENGLISH GAME: you do not want the SKIN to be taken of as on Old English Game, they are NOT SNAKE HEADED They are a breed that can be dubbed by following the line in their comb that comes with hatch. From front to back and then come down straight in the back. Also only cut just what you have to on the ear lobes, so the skin does not have to grown back. I learned from the best Ralph Sheriff Sr and Jr. from Piedmont SC. As they had shown Old English game bantams for 60 yrs. Old English have just the comb dubbed about 1/4 inch above head. And then just dub one wattle at a time . Then dub other wattle off do not take any extra skin off OLD ENGLISH GAMES. They need all the skin on after dubbing them. so they heal up nicely. Now as to what kind of dubbing shears to buy? And it is wise to buy a good brand of sissors. We got ours from a surgical supply house in Omaha Nebraska. DO NOT BUY FROM CHINA. Do not buy china made sissors as they do not use hardened steel. THE STEEL IS NOT GOOD AND IT TAKES A SHARP PAIR OF SHEARS. Thus surgical shears are made with sharp good solid steel.
