A LITTLE PERSONAL HISTORY
When I was still a kid, perhaps maybe around 8 years of age, my father had taken me to pay his friend a visit. When we got there, I saw these big tall ugly looking chickens running around. I inquired about what type of birds they were. I was told that they are Oriental Gamefowls. I begged my father to buy me one. He did buy me a stag for $20 which at that time, was a lot of money. He was a stag that was probably about 2 months old with the coloration of black breasted red. I took him home and took care of him like a baby. He followed me around like a baby, begging for food.
He grew up to be an awesome looking specimen, kind of reminded me of the super T-Rex. At that time, I don't know much about a bird's performance skills except for that they look exceptionally strong and athletic. Some guys came over to my father's house and asked to buy the bird. The were willing to pay $50 for him. To make a long story short, he was sold. I later heard that he went on to become a great bird for the owners. Thinking back, if I can go back in time, I would have kept him...for what...I don't know but would have still kept him.
WARNING FOR YOUNG FOWL LOVERS!
A side note to young fowl lovers, having birds when you're young may not be to your best interests. I always make the recommendation to my young friends that let the birds come after you've been throught college and earned your degree, are married, and need a relaxing hobby that will keep you occupy after a long hard days work. In that way, you will already have a career, money, and possibly a home with land to take care of your birds at. Imagine this, you won't struggle to ensure that you have enough money to buy feed for your birds.
My breeding system is unque to my own preference and may not be the same as other's. I've had Oriental fowls since I was 10 years old and along the way have learned a lot tricks that can be beneficial to the fowls such as breeding, health, and maintenance, even taking great photos.
I have bred everything from Leung Hang Khao Thais, Burmese, Brazilian Shamo, and Brazilian Asils, and Gadons. I do not breed as many breeds anymore because it will consume too much of my time and will not help me to be as focused on one breed of birds. I am focusing my attention on two strains (my two favorites); blacks and black breasted reds.
I reside the lush central valleys of California on a 1.5 acre country lot, perfect for raising fowls. I continue to breed them as a hobby. The hobby is easy to start but hard to end. Any one who has raised gamefowls can probably testify to this statement.
The key to breeding desirable birds is to be consistent with your breeding methods. In other words, have a goal in mind on what your breeding focus is one. I'm not a big supporter of inbreeding but more of linebreeding. Let me state an example, say I like the production of a pair of birds and have recently lost one or two of the paretns. I pick from the offsprings the best stag and best pullet. From there, I breed the two out and then cross their offsprings back to their aunt or uncle or cousins. Too many people lose out on their breeding because they have too many families to focus on. In the long run, they lose on the originals and lose out on the essentials of the breeds.
I breed specifically for birds that have good structures and eye pleasing looks. Broodcocks must not be too short for them to be allowed to breed. If you raise any oriental birds, you will know that they start out being tall and long legged birds but as they mature, their body fills in which in essence, will make them look shorter. I prefer stags to be high stationed so that when they become cocks, they will be medium stationed birds. The length of the bird's body must be at least twice it's width (from shoulder to shoulder). The tail of the bird must be at least the lenth of its body(base of neck to tail bone). The more tail feathers, the better.
