Australian Game

 Australian Game

Australian Game chickens were developed from the cockfighting breeds in Australia brought there by British soldiers in the 1900’s.  Like the English Modern Game they were developed using Malay and Old English Game fowl.  They are large muscular birds with hard brittle feathers.

The breed is very lightly regulated as there is no set set of colors or characteristics other than an athletic bird that would be suitable for a cockfight.  Alertness, health, strength, and speed is more important along with a trim muscular appearance.   There are many different colors and there are bantam varieties.

Rooster will weight around five pounds and hens around four pounds.   The eggs will white and slightly tinted colors.
