Performance Statistics

Select first and foremost on the performance of the pedigree and of the individual.

The pedigree must have at least a winning percentage of 85% and must be multi time winners for a number of years if not a decade. Get to know the pedigree and its fighting style. The pedigree is dominant especially when the breeder enters a full show of the pedigree at a derby and grab the championship on quick wins.

The individual should be at least a two-time winner winning without a scratch in 60 seconds or less.

Vital Statistics

Physical Statistics

Select high station, solid body conformation and light weight.

The ideal minimum shank (metatarsus) is 3.25 inches or 8.25 centimeters from top of the prop toe to middle of the knee (hock).

The ideal leg (tibia) must be long too.

The ideal thigh (femur) must be long too.

The ideal minimum girth is 20 inches or 50.8 centimeters.

The ideal maximum weight is 5 pounds and 4 ounces or 2.376 kilograms

Age Statistics

The physical statistics above is for a year old to 2 year old cock. Older cock might weigh more.

When Ordering

Even a photo or video sometimes cannot give us the actual vital statistics or physical statistics due to optical illusion. Maybe a ruler included in the photo will help.

To avoid misunderstanding between you and the breeder, send the breeder the vital statistics – (minimum) shank length, (minimum) thigh length, (minimum) leg length, (minimum) girth, (maximum) weight, and age.

Let’s Standardized Vital Statistics

I hope vital statistics (physical and age statistics) will be included in every photo of gamefowls on the web and print.
