    I bought my aseels (asils) off eggbid from Shamoman- he has several breeds of gamefowl. Might want to try him.

    According to the book Pocketful of Poultry, Shamos will begin fighting almost immediately after hatching. They are very aggressive.

    According to the book, Aseels are very aggressive and best suited for experienced poultry keepers.

    The Malay, is over 3 feet tall, looks almost just like the Shamos, but the book says they are "mellower than other game birds, slow to mature, doesn't do well in confinement."

    I bought Shamos from Ideal and the chicks act no different than the others. They are in a brooder together. They also aren't any bigger than the langshans and jersey giants I ordered from them, hoping for a growth spurt soon. [​IMG]
