    Oh yeah, he's a game. BTW, just cause he is game, doesn't mean he is mean to people. Most games are very calm towards people as a rule if they are well bred. Take some time to handle him, and I am sure he will calm down. They are beautiful birds! What do you mean you "took" him?

    Quote:by "took" i mean i gave the guy so much ca-ca bout putting him in a fight that he told me to just take him then,,,,,,, so i did [​IMG]
    he's mean towards people because he was never handled at all ,,i can pick him up and scratch his head,,and rub his back,,,,until he decides "thats enough",,hehe ,, he's more "scared" then anything,,,but i still mess with him every day,,and i work at home,, so my "break" lounger is right next to him.
    he looks forward to the girls comming over and throwing him some cat food. [​IMG]

    Yep, and if you make it a point that you gave him the hen, it will go a long ways to calming him towards you. Like any male, a little lovin' goes a long way to keeping him happy... lol!
