So letís get some activity out of all you new guys
First of all thank you very much Jesse for the great work you are doing here at the AC, in benefit of all members. You have ignited a new flame to the site that hopefully will drive it ahead for a long time.
Hello thanks for the add, just recently got back into birds after taking a 17 year break (not by choice). I purchased my first Brazilians from Bob Rodgers back in the day. I've been looking at pics on the forum and its nice to see how well the birds have evolved thru out the years.
First of,Thanks for letting me be a member.
Congrats on the amazing job,you guys have done and continue doing.
P.S My Pure Spanish(imported via eggs from Spain) are in Nicaragua, not in Florida.
Thou in Florida you will find,what a lot of American cockers call "Spanish" which in reality are Cubans and Puerto Rican, thou they DO have Spanish blood in them,they are "Chispiado or Pava" term used when Bankivas have Asiatic blood in them, mainly Shamo or Asil.
99.9% I want to say 100% of the so called "Spanish"gamefowl in the USA is NOT PURE Spanish from SPAIN.
I am a native of Nicaragua(where cockfighting is our culture and protected by our constitution), owner of some Pure Spanish gamefowl.
I live in West Palm beach and lastly.
I would love to buy some Nasser Saab Viper lol.
I've been a member before but our cable company sold out last year and i lost everything.
I have the straight Atkinson Asil (Bloodlines: 3/4 Chalk 1/8 Ross 1/8 Reynolds) from Eric Hillis .
Sometimes I get a buff looking pullet but most are a darker side(in Hens), Black Breasted Reds in Roosters
I've been raising gamefowl for a little over 30 years. I've always had Oriental blood on my yard, but only used them for crossing. I just got interested in breeding Pure Orientals and learning about Tape Boxing within the last 5 or 6 years. For crossing we used to have Atkinson Asil, Brazilian, Ghan Asil, Pakistan Asil, Rampuri Asil, and Briefcase Japs. Pure, I started out with some Yakido Japs and Brazilian/Atkinson from Dr. Dave, and I had some Pure Pakistan Asils from a local breeder, but I got rid of all of them. Now I have GaNoi and Argentinian blood.
Hello fellas Iím Steve from Texas, been around Gamefowl since I was 14. Mostly Americans but have friends that have been raising Hamlins (Sonotals) for yrs.
Iíve raised a few as well. Currently raising Corey Jap (Hennie tail line) , Corey black asils , few Hamlins, & some Harris crosses. Iím just playing with making grades looking for something special.
JBrock, I would like to thank you for opening this topic, so I might introduce myself. I got started in cocking some 38yrs. ago. My kids were young, and we made it a family affair. My daughter, Jennny, was my greatest helper. She had a Miner Blue hen she thought to ride on the handle bars of her bike. We had many differant strains of American pit fowl, but, at that time, Orientals were hard to come by. I had read many stories about their deep gameness, but all the local pit croud said they were dunghills. So, I made some battle-crosses to prove them wrong. I never lost a fight with either stag or cock. ... Rufus
