    Hello, I'm new to game fowl and recently got a few of these. So now I'm trying to identify each breed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The first two pictures is the stag. I thinks it's about 5 month old. The hen is about a year or so. I had to cut the spur because they were getting too long. I'm uncertain to what breed it is too. The legs are a yellow greenish color. Thanks for all the help!

    I'd say American games. The stag might be a mix, because it kinda looks like he has a pea comb; what kind of comb does the hen have? Is it pea, or just a small single? If it's a pea then they're most likely American game mixes.

    Only the breeder would know for sure. A lot of games look alike, and they would know what it is or was possibly crossed (which I would guess it is due to the green,yellow legs) And a lot of American games have peacombs. Hen same thing no one truly knows except breeder just cause u see one like it dosnt mean that's it

    Sad thing is, alot of people who breed game fowl don't know/care what breed it is as long as it's mean. My neighbors have quite a few games, but as far as I know they have no clue of the exact breed [​IMG]

    There's different classes. There's breeders then there's "breeders" the latter only doing more harm to an already misunderstood fowl. True manfighters are unwanted and usually culled.

    Yeah, two peoplein my neighborhood are "breeders." One guy sells his birds for hundreds of dollars - I want to go see them sooo bad.
