  6. I know that there are alot of people on here that raise and keep game birds. There are several kinds and some of them are able to look you in the eye.

    If you would like to know what kinds there are, you can do a google search and see photos and descriptions.

    I simply LOVE my game birds, but I only keep a certain kind. I try very hard to keep true to this group as possible. I only have one really nice roo and he is a real terror. Game roos are sorta bad with the fighting thing. They don't just fight for the pecking order, they fight to the death and they are really good at it. If you do decide to raise games, just be aware of this.

    I raised my roo from an egg and he will let me pick him up, even when he is in the middle of a fight. Not all will let you do this.
    He is one of the tamer ones. My game hens are VERY loyal to thier roo, he keeps them in line and I know he will sacrific his life to protect his hens.

    if you're in nc you should have no problem finding a few around. if nothing else put an ad up at the local feed store. chances are someone has a few extra and they might be willing to help a beginner out. try something like "looking to buy - gamefowl, yard hatch or excess pullets, looking to get started", etc"

    on the other hand if you'd be willing to ship I've got some extras I'd be willing to part with. I just put some pics up of some of my gamefowl on my webpage www.freewebs.com/bob_152/
