Indian Game (Cornish Game)

A gamefowl breed created in England in the 19th century using Old English Game, Asil and Malay. Since then the breeds appearance has changed dramatically. From an Asil-like bird to a very broad (cube-like) and extreme low stationed bird. Due to this evolution breeding is not an easy task. Mating becomes very difficult (low fertility and hatching rates). Dispite these problems the breed continues to attract a fair number of breeders. Remark: the socalled "Cornish Game" in the US did not expirience this extreme evolution. Cornish Game combine a bully-looking appearance with a sufficient height in station. Their heads are still Asil-like. Birds : Mr.Jurgen Kessler (Germany)
