Gentlemen talk to me.especialy the guys from mexico in cuarto redonda.I have to belive someone has graded the gadon in to cuartito.They sympley have it all in tape,i would have to say in a none weight tape show probably the one of the best tape breed ever made.That being said in a weight contest i think pound per pound, the Saab brazilian is one of the best breeds all around.
GaDon is a Vietnamese term, short for Ga Noi Don. The bird typically comes from Vietnam. The line ranges from 7 lbs to 10 lbs. The bird is muscular, very strong, thick skin, thin feather but kind of slow. The folks breed them to mostly use for tape boxing competition over there. In my experience, the line is best fit for endurance, take hard hit very well, but they're not fit for weapon competition as they too slow and will run when hit by gaff. Some also have traits of superlock, underwing etc which is not preferred in weapon birds
I have sold some Ganoi hens to Hispanic guys I know and they breed them down to 1/4 Ganoi 1/4 asil and 1/2 Spanish for Quarto de Redondo and have done ok, but I would not recommend them, Japanese imported Shamo do a lot better in weapon games ad I'm told.
I'm not qualify to answer, but most gadons I ever had tend to have skin that was more easily cut and they tend to have "tickle feathers" meaning if they lose a couple feathers they tend lose confidence and might even run like when they are in a molt and wont face. other than that they have the better muscle mass and bone structures. Usually they don't reach their prime until later, compare to the thai's and brazilians, they do better when young, but slow down once they hit the 2-3 year mark. like the asils,
Good Threads asilfan on what you said on differrant levels on gameness.I would have to say to add to that.Different levels of genetic pain resistant and tolerance to the area that normaly gets the pounding in each particular sport and the type of weopon used in each particular sport.
sorry for the poor grammer...even i myself get an eyesore with my own poor writings. but what i meant was the gadons, and this is just base from my own experiences tend to do better in second feather...the thais and brazilians can reach their potential early as soon as they start to crow, but often times, doesn't perform as well once they hit second feather. of course this is just a generalization and a pattern I've seen and witness base off from my own experiences when it was still legal. it might be different now.
i'm thinking there's a reason why the Vietnamese tend to emphasis a lot more on toughening up the skin on their gadons...very few thai cockers use tumeric and if they do they only use it moderately....
