    I never sai anything bad about usa. Im proud american from Tennessee! And u cant argue with fact that all chickens dna have asil in there makeup dont care how u cross them. Asil is the oldest recorded domesticated bird recorded known to man 3500 years. All gamefowl baseline has asil blood. Period. Dont believe me look it up. I wasnt trying to be a jerk but your response to mine wasnt pleasant.I didnt mean any offense before.

    I know I read where the title of this forum is, Show Off Your American Gamefowl!!! Maybe there should be a tread called show off your cuban spanish asil oriental irish fowl. That way no one has to worry if they dunghill or not

    fairly sure most are aware of that. It doesn't matter though. We're mainly about what is now referred to as American gamefowl. Obviously most lines have oriental blood in em. They are still known as American gamefowl.

    Might as well go to the oriental gamefowl or the show off your games thread. Especially since I'm banned from that thread anyway. That way I won't be subjected to the jibberish

    I just don't understand why come to a American gamefowl tread and always talking down on them. I have a great deal of pride in what I have and where they originally came from and they are 100% game to the bone!

    That is not entirely correct. Aseels most certainly have a long historical record and figure prominently in many meat, ornamental and even some current game breeds but they are not likely the ancestor of what is known as English, Irish and Spanish games that dominate the makeup of current American Games. The DNA data is not yet out there but I am betting it will be found the European / Bankovid Games are at least as old as the Aseel lines. The problem is the keepers of the former either did not keep as many records or records were lost during the multiple social upheavals that occurred over the millenia. Key to this logic for me is the Aseel type games are a lot more different from the ancestral jungle fowls upon which all chickens are based than the Bankovid games are. It is not likely that something as odd as an Aseel could be selected from wild jungle then selected back towards they Bankovid type.
