    I have 4 of these, one has a white tuft of feathers on his rump, two appear to be twins.. and even pal around together. I am assuming they were nest-mates. Thanks!!

    Can't see the comb real clearly but it's definately not a single comb so it's not a game. Might be a Malay. However it looks like it might be a pea comb making in an Aseel.

    American Game, one of the peacombed families. keep a close watch on those roosters, they look like they're getting old enough that they may turn soon. if you plan on keeping them i'd suggest you build each of them a pen now with about 2 foot min. of plywood around the bottom.

    the working standard set forth by the American Game Fowl Society permits straight, pea, and rosecombs.

    Wow, I can't believe some think this is a Malay, or Asil! It is definitely an American game, most likely a roundhead from the pic, but to be honest, nobody can tell you what strain of game this is except the breeder, because a lot of strains are very similar in look.
