Random rant… I own some Shamo chicks and I was clucking around the site here and noticed a person asking how to pronounce it. It's an old thread so I didn't bother replying but I have to answer this anyways, mainly because the friend I got them from mispronounced it and had me googling pictures of killer whales. LOL Shamo is pronounced Shyah-mo with an a as in ah, and the mo rhyming with "toe." It's a Japanese name =) and o's are always "oh" a's are "ah," U's are "oo," i's "long e" etc. I study Japanese so I have to know these things XD but I thought y'all may want to know. I bet it's spelled like this "シアモ” (Shiamo)… but I haven't googled around that much. Too much cockfighting for me, I love my little birdies…err not so little…. but anyways yeah. Again I know it's random, but someone may benefit from this.
