Hi aussiegame,

I am moving this to Breeds and Breedings, as it is better suited there :)

yes! they have a very friendly personality and unique look. Thats what i like about them and i always had them when i used to live in malaysia. Pretty hard to get hold of any here though. Do u have any thai game yrself? Sadly i will have to re-home 2 of my cockerels cuz they are four of them and where i live now isn't ideal to have too many cockerels. Would u be intrested in taking them? as i would like to re-home them to someone that will look after and appreciate them as much as i do. Where about r u? i am in katoomba nsw. cheers

Thank u heaps for your generosity, but unfortunatly I might be a bit too far. I'm at Far North Qld and yes I do have some thai game myself. But I think Chookster would be an excellent owner too.

Hi teddy,


Could thai be used to improve Malays? they do seem to have the downward facing tails that many malay are lacking?

Cheers

Christian

they do have the very hard sparse feather the malays seem to be lacking. i have crossed them to indians but have found i have massive losses on them as they have the personality of the thia which is not compatable to a normal broody mother. they are very docile quite chickens and don't do a great deal. they are not aggressive unless provoked and the provoker soon finds out its mistake.

this fellow is over 8 weeks old and a pekin rooster has adopted him which is lucky as he kept him warm at night and i am sure has saved him from the hawk that is hunting at the moment:

this is mum and she rears the chickens way better than i can or any other hen:

this is is indian thai cross, i need to get a more recent photo:

this is the head ofmy thai rooster:

teddy i like your rooster, he looks like those simeses fowl.

here is my fellow with pure indians in the background:

Image

i was very worried about what the thai would do when he met them but apart froma little scuffel over a hen through the fence nothing happened however i will never let them be together.

here he is showing just how sparse his feathering is, just lost a few feathers due to a mite outbreak and he was half bald:

Image

now i have shown him here he will be going on agistment elsewhere.

I think the Thai's should be good, their tail is alway's down with feathers nicely cuved. One variety of my thai's are pretty good in size so I'm given it a go. As I don't really prefer the now show type malay's which are abit too clumsy (too out of balance), most older one stuggles just to ride a hen.
