    I was told that these were game fighting cocks. Bred for cockfighting. Is that so?

    Beautiful birds. While they look like gamefowl they appear to be getting along much too well. If they were really gamefowl 2 males would not be together w/o fighting.

    This photo was taken a couple of months ago....since mating season kicked in, I went from 6 roosters to 2. They fought until they died. We are in the process of building a coop to keep them separated.

    Thanks for the info!

    Look like gamefowl to me, but I could not tell you specifically which lines.

  8. Careful now. fighting bird threads are going to be shut down.

    I am sorry you lost your roos. They are beautiful creatures. Keep them separated as they will kill to the last one if it has already started.

    My dh says the top ones are grey's and the bottom ones Hatch. And yes, they have to be separated. Nothing is going to get shut down over talking about games, only about fighting them, which obviously is not happening. There are many ways to safely keep gamebirds, you just have to find what is right for you.

    My uncle says Hatch hens make very good mommas.
