    Other than size, is there any difference between O-Shamo and Shamo? Rosecomb-Ryan is trading me 6 O-Shamo eggs for 6 GDW OE eggs. [​IMG] I'm so excited! I want to show them as regular Shamo so that they have a chance of winning something more than just BB, but if there are any huge anatomical differences, I won't do that. So... help?

    They are one in the same. There are generally three recognized sizes of shamo. The Ko Shamo are bantam sized birds, weighing a couple pounds. The Chu Shamo are the intermediate sized birds weighing if my memory is correct, around 8 pounds =/-. The O Shamo are the heaviest of the shamo being around 12 pounds. All weights are of males, hens tend to be smaller in weight and stature.
