    Malays game and vigor as a oriental (wouldn't say wild) by old gamefowl by crossing (preferrably the rare blue) Sumatra stag with a malay hen and breed the cocks game and vigor into the pullets. Then making a working hybrid with far less holes in the genetics. (Health, prone to diseases, defects not visible). May take a good several years of first two of crossing then line and inbreeding and possibly infusions of the out ward crosses. No?

    Are you trying to make a blue Malay?

    No, I was either going to use a old English game or this unsure pure blue Sumatra stag/pullet to get the height, build, comb, stance, gameness and vigor of the Malay but with the feathering of one of the two breeds

    Satsumadori. Others are already working on them. I'd try to find someone and at least get some pointers from someone with first hand experience.

    I ordered the genetics of the fowl off of amazon, I know breeding is reverse in chickens. I just never tried infusing for just certain feathering. May just use my grey on a malay hen to pull more
