I traded for a bird entirely new to me today and I'm hoping someone who knows something of this breed can tell me if what I have is worthwhile. He's supposed to be a Red Pyle Shamo (or was it O Shamo?) cockerel. From looking at his spur stubs I don't think he's very old yet. His feet and legs are pretty big so if he grows into them he's going to be a big bird! I seem to recall these game breeds are somewhat sparse feathered so I'm not sure if his feather covering is normal or not. I did not see any signs of mites or lice, but I'm going to treat him for it just in case. While we're at it how do you pronounce the name? Is is Shamoo, Shaymoo, Shame-o, or what? The man selling them said Shamoo, but I've heard it pronounced Shame-o as well. The family copy of the SOP is in the girls room and they are asleep so I don't want to turn on the light to go look for it. Are they are recognized breed as in showable? I bought him for breeding purposes, but I'd like to know. Thanks much for any info you can give.
