    No.

    Gamefowl = chicken breed bred for fighting (territoriality not distinguishing characteristic). I study territoriality / behavior closely.

    Game Fowl = Wild Galliformes targeted by hunters which is comparable for water fowl and game fish

    In usages I am familiar with having two words implies multiple species while a single or hyphenated word implies a use.

    It still comes down to a lack of pretty colors, not a lack of birds.
