I have to eventually separate the 2 cockerels cuz of fighting. One cockerel has matured quicker then the other and keeps on jumping on the pullet. He crows a lot too maybe by giving him more hens will sort the constant crowing. Any idea?

it does not matter if it is thai or any other breed, once they start feeling their oats ckls need to be sorted. i have had to start culling and locking up birds. i am so hoping my big game males hold off getting tempremental a little longer as i have no way of isolating them in proper pens. i am not ready to put them in the freezer yet. my yokohama male is not too bad at keeping the young fellas in line but he cannot resist some of the bantam hens himself, gammy leg or not.

happy for now, but with 8 chicks assume 4 cockerels so there will be trouble sooner or later.

the parents are 2 yo

They are a nice breed, seem similar to Australian game except their plumage seems looser with golden feet.
Have anyone made a profile on this breed yet ?..they should have one so hopefully they be except as a breed in Australia and may be followed up with a club.

Thanks for sharing your photos, I enjoyed them.
