Post The Largest of the Oriental Gamefowl are ...
Which of the oriental gamefowl are the reord holders for size (both height and weight)?

I see one guy who has Malagache and he says the males regularly go over 12 pounds.

What would you say is # 1 largest and what's a close runner-up?

Thanks,
oldguy

All types have been know to have their 12 plus pounders. Lorenzo is right about the taiwans having the most common heavy weights. The saipan is not a true gamefowl. They are feral oriental fowl from the Saipan island. But I guess at 18 lbs they are the largest chicken!

There will be many opinions but in general I would say any breed that was developed for pit fighting. Game bantams are still called gamefowl even though some (or all) may not be game any longer. Cornish for example were developed from gamefowl but bred for eating so are not gamefowl.

What medication you on godwin? I cant speak for cornish being a Brit but indian game cocks are still pretty game my friend and as for bantams well there are some that arent very game but in my experience most are, you can say the same for large fowl some are game some are just show fowl. Ive seen a oxford miniature give a large oxford a run for his money. The bantams are game godwin just there size lets them down. Thats like saying small boxers cant box.

I didn't say anthing about indian games. You should reread my post. Oxford miniatures are not mentioned either. Show bantams we have in the U.S. are my reference. Your analogy "saying small boxers cant box" doesn't make sense either because I didn't say bantams couldn't fight, I said some may not be game. Being able to fight doesn't mean something is game. You have alot to learn my friend.

Where you think your cornish came from my friend ? You never mentioned show bantams and i'm talking Game BANTAMS which you obvisiouly know very little about. Your good at patronising people godwin when you know next to nothing about true gameness in fowl. Were all entitled to our opinion of course. So forgetting show fowl and cornish which are now a meat bird derived from our indian games, do you still think game bantams are no longer game ? If you do think there still game then you should explain yourself better. Maybe me and JA8DFYRE should come round to yours so you can edumate us :moon
