They look good aussie game cant wait to see them full grown where did your other two boys go to as there was an ad for someone looking for thai game hens in penrith.Do you think you will have to seperate these two boys when they get a bit older?

They are very tame and gentle. I have re-homed the other 2 cockerels to someone in penrith few weeks ago. I hope i don't have to separate these 2 cockerels and so far they haven't shown any aggression towards each other. One of them has just started crowing. Let see.

Perhaps these are the Australian variety Thai's with a different DNA. :bolt:

mine are very similar to my yokohamas in so many ways. the only difference is the yokohama appears more frail which most likely due to inbreeding, selecting for delitarious genes and the white soft feather. otherwise they walk the same way, do the same things, have the same general body shape in the hens, same look in the head, not very active.

one think i noticed about these thais was when i crossed the rooster to my indians the death rate of the chickens was phenominal. lots of chickens hatched but most have died. i am going to try the yokos to them next it will be very interesting to see the results. it could be what is needed in the yokos to boost them or it could be just another disaster.....next season.

Are you meaning crossbreed and made up's from Aussie breeds?

They almost look the same as yrs ruff. Yeah i am bit worried about the 2 cockerels may fight when they reach their mature age. I will have to separate them this week before it happens. I think it will be interesting to cross them with aussie or malay game as they do look quite similar. I used to have a pair of aussie game but unfortunately had to re-home them together with 2 cockerels due to moving house.
