just a quick question, is Shamo and Burmese game in australia.
If so, have they just been created by using other game breeds or were they imported?
thanks,

Scott

Burmese I have never seen nor heard of here, same for Brazillian game. Proper Shamo's are here or were, most out there now are poor Thai crosses, though there was a Fijian man called Carlos in the 80's that was a diplomatic ambassador that brought proper 2&1/2in or 7cm wide skulled birds into oz.
My fowl called Hades was a descendant of this strain, though when I got him he was 1/2 of Carlos's and 1/2 Malay. True Shamo should have some green/willow spots/scales on the leg.
Black/red is the colour to look/breed toward as it is the closest to wild.
The best other strain of Sham's I've seen are bred by Craig from sw brisvegas
Hades and his sister, the third pic a triple Thai for comparison

I also have shamos but not sure how good they are.
I find it very hard to find different blood to breed with.

how wide are the skulls on those birds, Ricky?
I really like Shamo's, would it be possible to put photos of your birds up?(if you can't be bothered, don't worry).
thanks
Scott

I dont think the skulls of my birds would that wide.
I could post some pics but im only new on the forum and not sure how to go about it, if you could explain how I will try.
Im not sure how our shamo would measure up with other members standards.
I have had good feedback when we have had spare birds available and put pics online, not that this means they are great birds.

thanks so much for putting them up.
to post photos:
firstly, you go into the gallery, where it other members photos. on the top right hand corner it says upload photos. press that and a page comes up where you do titles etc of your photos. on the bottom of the page is a button that says "submit files" (or something like that). when you click that, it comes up with your desktop files, documents files and so on. you then select the photos. REMEMBER THAT THE FILES HAVE TO BE RESIZED TO LESS THAN 200KB.
Once they are uploaded into your gallery, you highlight the writing in the box on the right hand side of the photo you want that says "linked image". you copy that and paste it onto your post and you will see the photo when you submit the post.

hope this helps,
Scott

Actually, the gallery will resize anything under 3MB for you these days. Unless your pics are ginormous you don't have to worry about resizing prior to upload. ;-)

awesome looking birds!! I would love to have some, but it would mean having to change my whole set up, as they need quite a bit of room and I read some where that they are practically monogamous (cock mates one or two hens for life), is this true with yours?

thanks for the photos

Scott
