    Not to be rude or anything but most of american gamefowl have at or around 1/16 asil in them for the power aspect. Now im new to gamefowl and such but im not uneducated on the matter. Asils are the oldest recorded gamefowl known and most came from them. Such as cornish and oegb and many many others.they crossed several different birds with asils and jungle fowl and such and most american fowl was imported and cross bred to get the lines we have today.

    come one really, put away the red white and blue the reality is they are all English, Spanish from Spain and Irish fowl so relax. Well not including the more recent rise of Asian blood. The law grey and roundhead "American" lines where the first to mix in the Asian birds.

    I concur, the birds thrive here and breeding is not as hard as some countries due to weather conditions. That's why you can't have sensitive birds as they can't acclimate to the change when taken overseas. Though any bird will need time to stretch and rest after a long flight in a small box.

    That is how we should all feel about our birds and if not get new birds.

    I believe centra is more educated on the oldest gamefowl, most the pea comb fowl had some degree of asil bred in them. I'm not stupid I have raised gamefowl since the early 80s and still have 4 of original bloodlines that I started with. I know 100% of what it took to make everyone of them 50, 60 years some older. I can take one side of any family and genetically reproduce him/her in 9 single matings making it over 99% pure to the original side. and get off the red white and blue I'm proud to be American
