Our 2 new Indian Game Cockerels

These guys are new. They are big, scary looking birds with mean looking spurs and thick, solid necks like body builders on steroids. Yet they were surprisingly scared of our little hens!

They are 18 months old and as they were raised together they get on ok with no fighting. The girls seem to have stopped giving them such a hard time too.

The exciting thing about this breed is that you can breed them with pretty much any old hen and the resulting youngsters will be meaty enough to feed a family.

Cute, aren’t they?!
